The Messenger, Vol. 3

Excerpt from The Messenger, Vol. 3: June, 1907 In the days of ancient Greece we see the natives travelling weary miles in order to consult the far-famed oracle of Delphi; the Romans trusted with implicit faith their precious Sibylline books; nsaul consulted the Witch of Endor for information; and today our poetess may listen to the inspiring voices of the muses, and enrapture her listeners with songs of poetic frenzy. Our prophetess may draw aside the curtain which separates the present from the future and revel in the stories woven from the wanderings of her imagination. But I, as historian, am denied the use of imagination, and the inspiration of the muses, for history deals with the deeds committed in the flesh. I, as the scapegoat of the ancient Hebrews, 'have all the sins of the people to bear, and these are they who have come up through tribulation and donned garments of white. In most great eras there is some one condition which strikes the key-note to the age. In the beginning it would be best to give you our chief claim to fame, and I have good authority for the statement, which lies in the fact that We have been heard for our much speaking, and for this reason the very dignified and dutiful members of our class, Mary Lucy Harrell, Alma Cole, Jessie Rigsbee, Lottie Burroughs, Mabel Bruce, Leonard Dunlop and Myrtle Leigh will be immortalized by the teachers.
