Transcribed from College Symposium of the Kansas State Agricultural College Topeka, Kansas: The Hall & O'Donald Litho Co. 1891.


Our work is nearly completed. For three long months we will have been at work on this modest effort. We have often been hindered and sometimes well nigh discouraged by the obstacles which we have had to encounter. None of us had ever had the slightest experience in this line of work, and as this is the first book of its kind ever issued from this College, we had not even a guide to work by. At the outset we expected to produce a grand book. We are content to call this merely an indifferent one. We had no expectations of growing rich; nor have we, as the "finale" will illustrate. We expected to learn something outside of that usually found in text books, and we think we have; at least we have learned better than to try such a thing again. We cannot say that we exactly regret having undertaken the task, but we can all say, in the words of the immortal Shakespeare,

"Before an editor again we'd be,
We'd drown ourselves in the deep blue sea;
To some far off cannibal isle we'd flee,
And let the savages make hash of we."
