trainmaster lost no time chasing a tenwheel flyer with Red Callahan at tho throttle Up to myofflctey he shouted and ten seconds later Kent was leaning breathless over the desk In the dis patchers room while MTosh called Dargan over thtfyard limits telephone Is that you Durgan he asked when tho reply came Then Drop the board on Cha mail quick and send somebody td tell TIscher to sidetrack leaving the main line Western Division clean dot thatT The answer wAS evidently prompt and satisfactory since he began again almost in the camct breath Now go out yourself and flag Calla han before he reaches the limits Tell him tho timecards changed and he is to run west with the special to Meg lip as first section of tho mallno Mops or Tischer will run him down Leg It Hes hall way down the yard nowThe trainmaster dropped the ear piece of tho telephone and crossed quickly to the dispatchers table Orders tor thE Western Division Donohue he said curtly and dont Jet the gross grow Receivers car Callahan engineer runs to Megilp as tin artlon of fast mall Fast mall Hunt conductor Tischer engineer runs to tho end of the division with out stop making up all time possible Add to that last Py order of the re ceiver The orders were sent as swiftly as the dispatcher could rattle them off on his key and then followed an in terval of waiting more terrible than a battle Kent tried to speak but his lips were parched sad his tongue was like a dry stick between his teeth What was doing In the loWer yard t Would Durgan tall at the pinch and mismanage it so off to give the alarm t The minutes drugged leadenwinged and even the sounders on the dispatch ers table were silent Suddenly the clicking began again The operator at yard JImlU was sending the K to the two train orders So larao good Now if Calla han could get bout on the Western Division But there was a hitch In the lower yard Durgan had obeyed orders promptly and precisely and had suc ceeded in stopping Callahan Durgan climbed to the cab of the 1010 and the changed plan was explained in a dozen words But now came the crux hI I stand here till youd be bring in mo my orders fit have the whole kit av thim buzzln round to know whats the maCther said Callahan but there was not other thing to do and Durgan hurried back to the telegraph office to play the messenger I He was too long about it Before he got back rialkctt was under tho cab window of the lOltf demanding to know with many objurgations why Callahan had stopped In tho middle of the yards Get Or move on you 1 he shouted The express W right behind us and Itll

iii shadowy figure had upon the enginestep a scant halfsecond behind him and Callahan was stuffing the crumpled copy of the order Into ills sweatband of his C3pTha next instant the big 1010 leaped forward like a blooded horse under an unmerited cut of the whip slid past the yard limits tele graph omco and shot out upon the Bjain line cC the Western Division Sit down Mlsifier Halkett an mike yersclf aCiyt Jelled Callahan cross tho cabTbumaU Use Jimmy Shrivel II have for his box this night Shut off YOU Irish madman was the shouted command Dont you see youre on the wrong division Callahan gave the throttlebar an other outward hitch tipped his seat and took a hammer from the tool boxI know where Im coin an thats more thin you know ye blandhan derln divlll Up on that box wit you an kape out nv Jimmy Shovels road or Ill be the death av yea Climb nowIt was at this moment that the tense strain of suspense was broken in the dispatchers room on the second floor of the Union station The telephone Iklrled joyously and the trainmaster snatched up the earpiece What does he say asked Kent Its all right He says Callahan Is out on the Western Division with TlBcbcr chasing him according to programme Halketts in tho cab of the 1010 with Patsy andholdon Uy George he says ono of them jumped the car as It was passing the limits station Which one was it asked Kent and he bad to watt tilt the reply came from Durgan It was Hawk the rightofway man He broke and ran for the near est electric car line the minute he hit the ground Durgan says Does ho countNo said Kent but It is always a mistake to underrate an enemys caliber even that of his small arms CIIAPTEIl XXVII THE NIGHT OP ALARMS- If Editor Hlldreth had said noth ing in his evening edition about the impending strike on the TransWest- ern it was not because public Interest was waning For a fortnight the newspapers In the territory tributary to the road had been full of strike talk MT HEAVEN KENT YOLUE GOOD FOR SO YEARS AT TUB VERY LEAST and Hlldreth had said Ills say deprecating the threatened appeal to force as fearlessly as he condemned the mismanagement which was provoking- It But it was Kent who was responsi ble for the dearth of news on the eve of the event Early In the morning of the last day of the month he had sought out the editor and begged him to close the columns of the Evening Argus to strike news no matter what should come in during the course of thedayI go into the reasons as deeply now as I hope to a little later he had said his secretive habit hold ing good to the final fathom of the slipping hawser of events But you must bear with me once more and whatever you hoar between now and the time you go to press dont comment on it I have one more chance to win out and It hangs in a balance that a feathers weight might tip the wrong way Ill be with you between 10 and 12 tonight and you can safely save two columns of the morn ing paper for the sensation Im going to give you It was in fulfillment of this promise that Kent bestirred himself after he had sent a wire to Ormsby and MTosh had settled down to the task of smoothing Callahans way westward over a division already twitching in the preliminary rigor of the strike convulsionI to set the fuse for the newspaper explosion he said to his ally Barring accidents thero Is no reason why we shouldnt begin Vo figure definitely upon tho result is thereMTosh was leaning over Dispatcher Donahues shoulder Ho had slipped Donahues fingers aside from the key to cut in with a peremptory G S order suspending in favor of the fast mall the rule which requires a station operator to drop his board on a following section that is less than ten minutes behind its fileleader Tho fun Is beginning said the trainmaster Tischer has his tip from Durgan to keep Callahans tail lights in sight With the mall tread- Ing on their heels the gentlemen In the Naughtseven will be chary about pulling Patsy down too suddenly in mid career They have Just passed Morning Dew and the operator reports Tischer for disregarding his slow signal Cant you fix that asked Kent Oh yes that Is ono of the things I can fix But there are going to bo plenty of others Still we must take something for granted Mr MTosh What r have to do uptiwn wont walt until Callahan has finished his run I thought the main difficulty was safely overcome Umphl said the trainmaster the troubles are barely getting them selves born You mast remember that we swapped hones at the last minute We were ready for tho raw to thr nat Everybody oa the Prairie Division hd been notified that a special was to go I through tonight without stop from junctionImeeting points to meta slow trains i to sidetrack fool operators to hold down all on the dlrzy edge of a strike that is making nvery man on the line lose his balance But you go ahead with your newspaper business Ill do what a man can hero And if you come across that rightofway agent- I wish youd make it a case of assaultI and battery and get him Im leery about him Kent went his way dubiously reflective In the moment of triumph when Durgan had announced the sue cess of the bold change In tho pro gramme he had made light of Hawks escape But now be saw possibilities True tho junto was leaderless for the moment and Bucks had no very ablo lieutenants But Hawk would give the alarm and there was the rank and file of the machine to reckon with And for weapons tho ring controlled the police power of tile state and of tho city Let tho word be passed that the employes of tho TransWestern were kidnaping their receiver and tho gov ernor and many things might happen before Red Callahan should finish his long race to the westward Thinking of these things David Kent walked uptown when he might have taken a car When the toxin of panic Is in the air there is no antidote like vigorous action Passing the Western Union central office he stopped to send Ormsby a second telegram reporting progress and asking him to bo present in per son at the denouement to put tho facts on the wire at the earliest possible instant of time Everything depends upon this he added when bo had made the message otherwise emphatic If we miss tho morning papers we are doneWhile he was pocketing his change at the receiving clerks pigeonhole a cab rattled up wlth a horso at a gal lop and Stephen Hawk sprang out Kent saw him through the plateglass front and turned quickly to the public writingdesk hoping to bo overlooked He was For once In of way the ex dIstrict attorney was too nearly rattled to be fully alert to his surroundings There were others at the standing desk and Hawk wrote his message after two or three false starts almost at Kents elbow Kent heard the chink of coin and the lowspoken urgings for haste at the receiving clerks window but he for bore to move until the cab had rattled away Then he gathered up tho spoiled blanks left behind by Hawk and smoothed them out Two of them bore nothing but the date line mado illegi ble It would seem by the writers haste and nervousness But at the third attempt Hawk had got as far as the address To All TransWestern Agents on Western Division Kent stepped quickly to the receivers window Tho only expedient ho could think of was open to reproach but it was no time to be overscrupulous Pardon mo he began but didnt the gentleman who was Just hero for get to sign his messages The little hook caught Its minnow The receiving clerk was folding Hawks message to place it in the leather car rier of tho pneumatic tube but he opened and examined it No he said its all right M D Halkett G S Ah said Kent Thats a little odd Mr Halkett is out of town and this gentleman Mr Hawk Is not in his department I believe I should Investi gate a little before sending that It 1 were you- Having thus sown the small seed of suspicion which by the by fell on bar fen soil Kent lost no time In calling up MTosh over the nearest telephone- Do our agents on the Western Di vision handle Western Union bus ness hs asked The reply came promptly Yes locally The WU has an in dependent line to Breczeland Inn and points beyond Well our rightofway man hasI just sent a telegram to all agents signing Halketts name I dont know what he said in it but you can figure that out for yourself You bet I can II was tho emphatic rejoinder And then Where aro you now Im at the Clarendon public phone but I am going over to the Argus of flee Ill let you know when I leave there Goodby When Kent reached the night editors den on tho third floor of the Argus building he found Hildreth im mersed chindeep in a sea of work But he quickly extricated himself and cleared a chair for his visitor Pralso bet ho ejaculated I was beginning to get anxious Large things are happening and you didnt turn up Ive had Manville wiring all over town for you What are some of the large things asked Kent lighting his first cigar since dinner Well for one do you know that your people are M the verge of the rouchtalkedof stripe Yes I knew it tits morning That was what I wanted you to suppress in the evening edition- I suppressed it all right I didnt know Itday and date I mean They kept it beautifully quiet But that isnt all Something is happening at the capitol I woo over at the club a little while ago and Uendrlcks was there Somebody sent in a noto and he positively ran to get out When I came back I sent Rogers ovo to Cassattls to see if he could find jou There was a junto dinner crnfab on Melgs Senator Crowley three or four of the ring aldermen and halt ti dozen waward politicians Rogers has a nose for newr and when he had phoned me you werent there he hung around on the edges W Good men you tare illrarctb What did the unimpeachable Rogtrii scolHo saw on a large scale just what I had seen on a small one somebody puppassed a noto In and when it had gone tho round of the dinnertab those fellows tumbled over each other trying to get away Is that all Kent Inquired No Apart from his nose Rogers gifted with horso sense When tin 118 crowd boarded an uptown car man paid fare to the same con Ho wired mo from the Hotel Brunswick n tow minutes uo There Is some sort of a caucus going on la Hendrlcks office in the capital and mummessengers are flying in all di rectionsAnd you wanted me to come and tell you all tho whys and wherefores Kent suggested- I told the chief Ill bet a bubblind horse to a brokendoom mule you could do it if nnjboiy ccniiJ All right listen acuncthvag rors than an hour ago tho governor his private secretary Gullford Hawk and Halkett started out on a special train to go to Gaston What ort interrupted the editor To meet Judge MacFarlane Mr Seraplo Falkland and the Overland of- ficIals You can guess what was to b4 doneSure Your railroad was to out lock stock and barrel or lelsldI to the Overland for 49 years which amounts to tho same thing Precisely Well by some unite countablo mishap the receivers spe clal was switched over to the Western Division at yard limits and the cngl ncer seems to think bo has orders to I proceed westward At all events that is what he is doing And the funny part of It Is that ho cant stop to find out his blunder The fast matt is right behind him with the receivers order to smash anything that gets in Its way so you sce That wilt do said the night editor We dont print fairy stories in the Argus None tho less you are going to print this ono tomorrow morning just as Im tolling it to you Kent asserted confidently And when you get the epilogue you will say that It makes my little preface wearisome t r contrast Tho light was slowly dawning In the editorial mind My heaven I he exclaimed Kent youre good for 20 years at tho very lulleast Am It It occurs to me that the prosecuting attorney In the cato will have a hard time proving anything Dooent it look that way to ou7 At tho worst it is only an unhappy mis understanding of orders And if the end should happen to justify the moans Hildreth shook his head

been out of his home land for 20 years and comps back when his parents are dead his old friends dispersed and the old nest has passed to other occupants And can his loneliness be more emphasized than when his return syncronlzes with ChristmasThat my condition when I revisited the mother country With a beating heart and straining eyes I had looked for the first sight of dear old America after having left it as a lad hardly a man some 20 years ago- I was back not to homeI had no home now My heart began to tall me mji spirits decline whoa I reached tho line country town near which I had been born and where I had fleet ed the golden hour of childhood No one knew me In the churchyard I laid a wreath on the graves where lay dear old father and mother I looked at our house It had been rebuilt and was occupied bt strangers IYou Are Very Good I went through the village Tho little shops had fresh names over then The old rector who had baptized me was dead The old school was gone The ancient church had been renovated The vlllago Inn was In new hands The old Christmas was no more No frost no snow no Icicles only sludge and a drizzling rain- I returned from my visit to the vil lage in deep depression I would haste to the rooms I had taken In a house In the town and spend my Christmas Eve with my pipe and glass alone with not even an old dog to lie at my feet and look up with speak- Ing eyes Into my face and sympathize with me In my solitude I would pass the evening before the fire looking into tho red coals not building castles among them but watching the tum bung down of old cottages old farms old reminiscences Into ash j I had done well in the other land and had returned not a rich man but with a competence- ItI had been my w shmy ambition to settle In the village about which I t t lung all my sweetest and holiest thoughts to buy there a little land to tread the old paths ramble In tho sane woods look upon tho same scones dwell among the same people remake a homo in tho same place Out now Could it bo- As I walked back to my lodgings through the street and by the market place folk were hurrying In all dlrec dons some with bunches of holly In their hands a girl or two with a sprig of mistletoe slyly hid In her muff a man wheeling a Christmas tree on a barrow butchers boys carrying joints for tho morrows dinner Plum pud dings and mince plos woro displayed In the confectioners shops The chemist tho hairdresser the seeds man the draper had stuffed their win dows with toys toys toys Ho who had come to oarth as a little child had filled every heart with thought of the little onos and desire to make Christmas a day of Joy to them I had no tiny ones of my own no little nieces and nephews no small cousins for whom to provide anything I was aloneutterly desolately alone As I pursued my way I saw a tall slim girl walking before mo with a basket on her arm and I uotlced that tho bottom had come out and that the contents toll on the pavement Of this she was unaware I stooped and picked up a little woolly lamb thoua something wrapped In paper then a silver match box breaking out of Its covering Gathering them together I ran after the girl and stopped her Excuso me said 1 Are you a female Hop o my Thumb dropping tokens whereby your track my be knownI her what I had collected She colored and thanked mo Then I recognized her as tho daughter of my landlady You must allow moo said I to tie my handkerchief round tho basket and to carry It for you I believe that wo go the samo way You are very good she replied We are about to have a Christmas tree for the children this evening and I have been making some trifling purchases as presents for my brothers and sisters and for papa and mamma who must not bo forgotten Thero gd tho candles I exclaimed as a cataract of red yellow and green tapers shot out of the bas ket And theres an orange said she as ono of those fruit bounced forth and fell and rolled away Into tho gutterWe were forced to stoop and col poet the scattered wax lights and then to tie my largo handkerchief about the basket What a fortunate thing said I that I have got a good sized kerchief in place of one of tho miserable little rags that do service nowadays That Is because I cling to old customs and when I was a boy my mother al ways gave me something like a dish cloth In my pocket Then wo proceeded on our way and when we went into the house she received the basket from me and again thanked me You must not remove the kerchief till all Is unpacked I said or there will be another dis charge of the contents and then tho children will see what you have provided for them ITHE TRUE CHRISTMAS SPIRIT I Shall you bo dining cut tomor row asked the girl Ioh nol I have none to dine with I know no ono hero And this evening Shall you be going anywhere Joh no I have nowhcro whith er to go So we parted and I ascended to my room I made up the fire and silt down and reread tho newspaper Thero was much In It about the apr preaching feast I had the Illustrated papers They had Issued Christmas supplements with pictures of happy family gatherings of Old Father Christmas of waits and carol singers I might perhaps hear the waits and singers I should certainly hear the Christmas bolls That would be all I had done with my papers I sat before the fire In a brown study and my spirits sank lower and ever low er I recalled the old Chrlstmasos I had spent at homo with my parents I remembered how I had looked Into my stockings on tho morning to goo If Old Father Christmas had visited me In the night and had left thero sumo presents for tho Good Boy Alas No Father Christmas would visit mo now All that was of the pastthe utterly and Irrevocably pastI not light my candles I could read no more I needed no light for my

depend upon tho Intelligent selection of ahatchlng machine When tho machine arrives uncrate it carefully Put together the different parts according to tho directions If you have bought a good machine the printed Instructions for setting up and stating will bo ample There nre a few common sense points however which will servo to save tlmo and labor Iut tho Incubator In a cellar or room whore there U a pretty even temperature nnd good ventilation Kv n tho best machines will do better work In such a place than when sub jected to sudden and severe changes The eggs also will surfer loss from abrupt and frequent variations whllo turning Keep tho lamp wick clean aid trim as often an necessary to do this Trimming every oar IB unnec essary With good oil every third day Is often enough Do not fuss too much over tho tern perature It can vary n degree or two either way and do no barm Tho eggs may run as low as SO degrees for some hours and then hatch well He ware of overheating It Is more un

Done Without Injury to the sees Last fall when I began packing my bees for winter I found that my shed was not long enough to pack them all In so I began to plan some easy way to pack sewn colonies that I had out In front of my shed writes a contributor to lice Culture These hives are standing on what I call trestles made by driving sumo large stakes In tho ground and nailing some SxC pieces to each row of stakes running east and west the hives fusing the south to 1 placet the hives Just tho right die tance apart than took sonic threefoot boards I had and laid a board down Outside Shelterfor Bees between each hive nat on the trestles The south ends of the boards arc Just oven with tho front ends of tho hive and the north end extends out ono foot further north than tho hives do Then I drove some hakes In a row nt the north end of these boards These stakes can bo alx or eight feet apart I nulled a broad plank to tho south lIdo of the o slakes The lower edge of this plank was Just ono Inch higher than the boards that I laid on the trestle This plank serves for a back wall to hold the straw Now remember that there Is about ono foot of space between this plank and tho back end of the hives and that there Is an open space between these boards Just back of each hive so to make a floor without any holes big enough to leak straw I lay boards back of tho hives across tho ends of tho boards that are laid be tween the hives the rest of the Work IB dono just like pocking them in a shed except of course the roof The straw Is about one foot deep on top of tho hives Theat laid a largo rail on top of tho straw at the front end and a small rail on the back part of the straw I then covered it by laying long boards across tho top of tho straw so the water would run north then I put heavy weights on the boards to hold them to their place Tho roof must have plenty of slope I notice quite a number of bcokccpors base their hives resting on trestles or scaffolds and I must say that they are handy When working with your bees In stead of setting frames dpwn on the ground ono can set them on tho trestle and lean them up against the hive and when winter comes I can pack my bees In straw without mov- Ing them very much This way of wintering Is a cheap one and it has proven to bo sate Culling Out It breeders of poultry would be moro hardhearted when culling out the flock they

Indeed now of equal Importance Is tho problem of necurln ltd caring for the mechanics laborers nd other employee who actually do the work on the canal the railroad This great task has been under tho control ot Mr Jackson Smith and on the whole has boon well done At present there aro some 60UO white employes and 13000 colored employes or tho Isthmus- I went over the different where the different kinds of were working I think I saw of typo both at their work and their homes and I conversed with probably a couple of hundred of them all told choosing them at random from every clasand Including those who came to present certain grievances olmost Invariably expressed far greater and satisfaction with the con ditions than did those who called to make complaint Nearly 5000 of the white employes had como from the Inlted States No man can see these young vigorous men doing their duty Arlthout a thrill of pride In them as Americans They represent on the average a high class Doubtless to congress the wages matter which I found had any real baste among the complaints made to me the Isthmus was that owing to the peculiar tho cost of living und distance from home the wales were really not DII high all they should be In tact almost every man I spoke to felt that ought tn be receiving more money a view however which the over n ta man who homo In the t riled States likewise holds as

10000 day laborers on tho canal a few hundred are Spaniards These do excellent work their foreman told me that they did twice as well mi the West Indian laborers They keep and no difficulty is experienced with them In any way Some laborers are also employed In connection with the drilling All might be ox pei ted with labor a high as at present In the United tales It has not so far proved

R vigor and efficiency pleasant to wit ness Tho three big problems of the canal are the La Hoca dams the Oatuidam and the Culebra cut Tho Cule bra cut must be made anyhow but of course changes as to the dams or at least as to the locks adjacent to the dams may stilt occur This Iji problemgood that there Is a practical certainty not merely ns to what can be achieved but an to the time of achievement Tho Gatun dam offers the most serious problem which we have to solve and yet tho ablest men on the Isthmus believe that this problem is certain of solution along the llneiproposed although of course It necessitates great toll energy and In telligence and although equally ot course there will be some little risk In connection with the work The risk arises from the fact that mums of the material near the bottom Is not so good as could bo desired If the huge earth dam now contemplated Is thrown across from one foothill to the other we will have what Is practically a low broad mountain ridge behind which will rise the Inland lake This showlessrestraining capacity than the average natural mountain range The exact locality of tho locks at this damam at the other damsIs now being de SecretaryTaft NobleSlearnaIsthmus and the three engineers will make the final and conclusive examl nations as to the exact site for each lock Meanwhile the work Is going ahead without a break The Culebra cut does not offer such great risks that Is the damage liable to occur from occasional land slips will not represent what may be called major disasters The work will merely call for intelligence perseverance and cxecutIV capacity It Is however the work upon spentThepossiblythetake even longer than the cutting In Culebra ItselfIn Culebra Cut The main work Is now being done In the Culebra cut It was striking and Impressive to see tho huge steam shovel In full play the dumping trains carrying dislodgedTherna ollnery wlikli often stand a little wa from the line of work though of ex celleut construction look like the vorles toys when compared with these new dumpingpared with the long trains of huge cars dumped 11 steam plows which are now In use This represents the enormous

dirt but they workteadlly In rock and In the harder ground There were some X at work during the time I was on thd Isthmus and their tremendou power and efficiency were most impress live New Records for Excavation As soon as the typo ot canal was de tided this work began In good earnest The rainy season will shortly be over find then there will be an Immense Increase In the amount taken out but even during the last three months In the rainy season steady progress Is shown by the figures In August i2000 cubic yards m Septemberpi7 l000 cubic yards and In ijrtober SROuu cubic yards In October new records were established for the output of Individual shovels as well as for the tonnage haul of Individual locomotives 1 hope to see the growth of a healthy spirit of tmulnU9n tween the different shovel and ledomollle crows jut such a spirit as has grown on oui battle ships between the different gun crews In matters of marksmanship Passing through tho cut the amount ol stew work can be seen at a glance In one place the entire side of n Ball had been taken out recently b IT tons of dynamite which were exploded at one blast At another place 1 was given a presidential salute of 21 charges of dynamite On top notch of the Culebrn cut the prism Is now as wide ns It will be all told the canal bed at this potnl has now been sunk about ado feet below what It originally was It will have to be sunk about 130 feet farther Through out the cut the drilling blasting shovel ing and hauling are going on with constantly Increasing energy the hugo shoves being pressed up as It they were mountain howitzers Into the most unlikely looking places where they eat their way Into the hillsides Railway Improvements The most methods not only In construction but In railroad manage ment have been applied In the zone with corresponding economies In time and cost This has been shown In the handling of the tonnae from ships Into cars and from cars Into Panama railroad where thankslargely to tho efficiency of General Manager lilerd the saving In time and cost has been noteworthy My examination tended to show that some of the departments had doubtless necessarily over developed and could now bo reduced or subordinated without Impairment of em clcncy and with a saving of cost The chairman of thecommlslon Mr Shont has all matters of this kind constantly In view and Is now reorganizing the goy ernment of the zone so as to slake the form of administration both more flexible and less expensive rubcrdlnatlng everything to direct efficiency with a view to tho work of the canal commission From time to time changes of this kind will undoubtedly have to bo made for It must bo remembered that In this giant work ot construction It Is continually necos vary to develop departments or bureaus which are vital for the time being but which won become useless Just as It will be continually necessary to put up build Ingll and even towns which In ten years will once morehive place to will then

wish to tell this week three or four things about Berea which are not generally known and understood STUDENTS BABNISOS In the first placeabout our man ual labor and chances of aarnlng money while In school It Is a principle of Berea College that all our neoeto ary work should be done by students under the directions of their teach ers This means that the wood te cut the cows milked the dishes wBh ed rooms swept and the new buildings erected by tho hands of the ttii dents Now and then we have to hire some outside persons In same particular labor when we do not have enough students who are skilled for that particular job but we Intend to have all our necessary work done by studentsIn to do this to good advantage we have to lay careful plans so that every student will have time I 5A It nrrimxif enough to refit and study and a little time for recreation long as the work holds out wo may require every student to something for example In the labor at the Boarding Hall every girl takes her turnIn order that no one girl may compelled to work the time We In tend to arrange It In such a way ihie no student will be hindered In his stu dies We find that the students do all the better In their studies If they have a little work to do every week Students who do not have to cart money will If be assigned very little worknever more than seven hours a week On tile other land students who wish to earn all they can will provided with extra work far as possible but no student do moro than eighteen hours work a week without dropping some study For the winter term wo cannot fur nish work all the young men be cause farm operations and out door labor are hindered by the weather Those who understand any trado like printing carpentry shoe making the like can have work Indoors as well as those who sweep rooms juul do other janitor work Every student Is pall nooordlng to the value of want he does Some students earn tlireo cents an hour end smile who can supervise the labor of other students earn as much as twelve and a half otnls an hour The pay Is given In scrip or money orders on the Treasurer which are due nt the beginning of each minth and p ply on board bills IWhon
