 unloading this volume on the unsuspecting public Hie Editors wish it to be distinctly understood that they will, in no way, be held responsible for what may be herein contained. Generally speaking, college annuals are not, specimens of standard writings. If this were the case it is probable that writers of such would turn their attention to other fields, less glorious perhaps, but certainly more remunerative. Neither are college annuals models of English  Grammar.     Usually they  contain  English  as  it  is   "spoke.''
If you should be interested in what we present we will be gratified; if angry, we will be amused. Gentle reader, have you ever impaled a. bug on a pin and watched it wiggle. It is a fund of amusement for allexcept the bug.
We have used a pen for the same purpose.
Perchance our witticisms may prove dull, our epics humorous or our jokes insipid. If you find such to be the case, we will be very, very, sorry for you.
li in perusing these pages, your lip should curl scornfully, close the volume until you are in a more forgiving frame of mind, for remember that ancient Sisyphus rolling his rock up a hill, had not a more unenviable experience than wethe Editors of the '"Echoes" for the year 1904.

KENTUCKY STATE COLLEGE, or, more properly speaking, "'The University of Kentucky," owe- its existence today not only to the Land Grant Act of Congress in the year 1862, or to the sporadic generosity of the General Assembly in succeeding years, but to the untiring efforts and shrewdness of James K. Patterson. There are few men among College Presidents today who could have so ably performed such work as he has done since the birth of the institution, forty-four years ago.
There are College Presidents noted for their erudition, others valued for their business acumen, but few there are who possess both. Of these few, President Patterson is one of the most prominent, A man of deep learning, yet possessing a vast knowledge of current affairs; a man of letters, yet a master of commercial technique; he has steadily lifted the plane of college education in Kentuckv, until the university of which he is president stands far above other educational institutions in the state and among the foremost in the South.

 HE Classical Department of the College has been under the direction of X Professor John H. Neville, the Nestor of the Faculty, ever since its establishment in 1880. This Department is, of all the Departments of the College, the most liberally provided for in the apportionment of the appropriations made by the General Assembly, despite the strenuous "kicks" of "Little Paul," who is always, seemingly, of the opinion that his own Department is sadly neglected in the distribution of the College monies. The equipment of this most generously supplied Classical Department consists of a large map of Europe, which adorns one of the walls of the room of the Professor of English, and glories in being the only possession of its owner.
The courses of study offered extend over the subjects of Greek, Latin, English, the Modern Languages, Mathematics, etc., and are two in number, the one with Greek and Latin and the other, with English as its major study, graduates in both receiving the degree of Bachelor of Arts.
The Professor of Greek and Latin is Dean Neville, well known to all as "Old .Tack," who, seated on his throne of glory, surveys with eagle's glance the unknowing faces of his unsophisticated students and tries to inculcate in them a desire for a knowledge of the deeds of ancient heroes in those halcyon i lavs,
"When  yet  the  Muse  was  young, When Homer swept the lyre and Mars sung."
Professor Neville also teaches Senior History, and finds time to exalt the doings of the great world characters, between frequent ejaculations of "Gentlemen, T must have quiet."
But to pass on to the course in English. Here we find A. St. Clair Mackenzie, the magnanimous, the invincible, the unspeakable "Sandy," who holds at finger's tip a knowledge of the masterpieces of the Old Country,  and in- struets the guileless youth in the rudiments of the language of the olden times when his Saxon forefathers roamed the primeval forests of ancient Britain. So great is the sphere wherein with majestic tread he moves, that, not confining- himself to the more superficial task of the mere teaching of English, he delves into the mysteries of the most exacting philosophy, and digs therefrom the radiant gems of Logic, Metaphysics and Ethics, with which to bedeck the less brilliant genius of his students, who, unworthy followers that they are of the great "Collegio Philosoplms," are not so fortunately blessed with a longing for the divine pleasures of intellectual pursuits.
We shall now consider the Department of Modern Languages, o'er which prevails tlie all-pervading spirit of tlie indomitable" Dutchman," PaulWernicke. No devotee who has entered within the classic portals of this temple dedicated to the goddess, if such there be, of Modern Lore, and knelt before her sacred shrine, has ever retraced his steps without having become imbued with an all-conqnering passion for a knowledge of French and German. The only possible objection which one could find to the methods pursued in this Department is that its head is unnecessarily harsh on the "skippers." But then, "skipping" is a thing of such rare occurrence at State College that the penalties inflicted for it by Professor Wernicke must need be few, even if severe.
The course in Political Economy extends over a period of the vast duration of two months, and instruction in it is upon such a broad and extensive scale that anyone who pays the slightest attention to his work cannot but come from under the powerful influences that it exerts over him as the most practical of financiers. "Old Pat," the instructor in this most difficult and, as it is here taught, far-reaching science, is too well known to need introduction.
38 r I "\HE Dean of this Department, which is the oldest in the College, is Prof. _X_ James G. White, who occupies the chair of Mathematics and Astronomy. The Scientific Department comprises seven courses, viz.: Chemistry, Physics, Geology, Zoology, Anatomy and Physiology, Botany and Entomology, all of which lead to the degree of Bachelor of Science.
At the head of the course in Chemistry is Professor Joseph 11. Kastle, the inimitable "'Little Jo," to whom is assigned the task of instilling in the minds of Kentucky's youth a knowledge of the elements, and who, by his oft-repeated explanation of "Goodness, gracious, sakes alive!" and his time-honored comparison of the intellect of his students to that of a "wooden man," has roused the latent genius of many a shiftless cadet, and made a distinguished chemist of him who, but for his efforts, would have died unwept, unhonored and unsung.
In the basement of the Main Building is a retreat familiarly known to the students as 'Taker's Best." Here the imperturbable "Peter" Pence holds forth and endeavors to hammer into the brain of the weary student, from Freshman to Senior, the rudiments of Physics. "'Tis hither that the luckless youth, detected by a more wary instructor in the forbidden practice of "faking," comes to retrieve himself and win back the lost laurels by taking advantage of the excellent opportunities offered him for "doing" the professor.
He who would geologist or zoologist be should not fail to see Professor Arthur M. Miller, who, in an unspeakably fascinating manner, expounds to the charmed listener the theories of the origin of world and man. By a prosecution of the studies of Geology and Zoology we are led to throw aside our narrow views and to comprehensively grasp ideas truly scientific. By these all-attracting subjects are we reminded of the time when primitive bird, in Pterodactyl feathers clad, its joyous flight did wing unto celestial  sky,  ami  when
39 iii princely dignity, the fabled Zengiodon sat basking in the sunshine of a prehistoric climate, rending the gentle breezes with its vociferous yells, interrupting the quiet meditations of its unhappy neighbors, and destined to disturb thereafter the soothing slumbers and peaceful dreams of the unfortunate geological and zoological student of later days.
The lover of nature and of nature's flowers we would refer to Professor C. W. Matbews, who will lead him into botanical researches of unfathomable depth. It is a generally conceded fact that the course in Botany is the most difficult in the College, and that it requires more concentrated work to acquire proficiency in it than in any other. Consequently, we would advise none but those most studiously inclined to seek a diploma tlirough its channels.
But in speaking of difficult subjects we should not omit Entomology, the subject which Professor H. Garman, a naturalist of national reputation, elucidates. To him, enamored of the absorbing pursuit of chasing the flitting butterfly o'er field on summer's clay, we would by all means give the advice to become a votary of the exacting science of "Bugology."
The latest addition to the Scientific Department is the course in Anatomy and Physiology under the supervision of Dr. J. W. Pryor, surgeon of the battalion. Here the prospective medical student will find work that will be of incalculable benefit to him in after years, from the mounting of the skele-tons of departed steeds to an intricate study of "man's frail form."
In closing this brief synopsis of a most valuable Department, we should not fail to mention again Professor White, the insuperable "Jimmie," expounder of the principles of Mathematics and Astronomy, in whose line it is to perform all the achievements from "fizzing out" the incipient Frenchman in "trig" and "solid," to instructing the all-knowing Senior in the celestial science of star-gazing.

THE Department of Civil Engineering, of which Professor John P. Brooks is Dean, was established in 1887. The equipment of this Department is the most elaborate in the College, it being supplied with all the apparatus needed by an up-to-date School of Civil Engineering, not to mention the fact that it is allowed for quarters the abundant space of almost a whole five by ten room in Mechanical Hall, the r
