considerable portion of the students and the faculty When one investigates the causes of this antagonism he usually finds that it has grown up in connection with misunderstandings and Differences of opinion upon matters which are accessory to the real purposes of the university such as athletics and society affairs As is often the case lack of harmony with reference to minor things has Iqd to partial estrangement in major things The students are young men and womenyoung therefore thoughtless and careless frequently headstrong They are young and they have not yet been sobered by responsibility and seasoned by experience but they are generous enthusiastic likable and hopeful with the faith of youth With few exceptions they intend to do the right thing if they know what the right thing is It is the duty of the faculty to point the way to the students with calm reasonableness Never yet have I known a body of representative students who failed to give fair weight to the ideas presented to them if presented for their consideration with the appeal to do the thing that is for the best interests of themselves the university and the state Be True to Your Own Ideals I

heard the principal objection by the beet sugar grower to the admission free of duty of Philippine sugar lies in the danger that their markets will be inun dated by the Philippine article It is not possible that the Philippine Islands could supply the actual in crease in demand for sugar year by year In the United States In that case there is no reason why the Phil ippine Islands should affect the mar ket until the beet and cane sugar produced within the tariff wall in creases 1800000 tons Before the beet sugar industry is in the sligifc est danger It must increase frcpp 440000 tons annually to 2120000 tonjj nd from annual reports it would take 50 years to do this I cant see how it would affect the domestic pro duction if Philippine Sugar were placed for a time on the free list

Health living In the country main taining a villa and staff of servants that she might be seen driving a per fectly appointed Cossack sleigh any day with a groom on the rumble and a companion beside her that she seem to be perfectly sane healthy inI tody and mind comfortable happy and enjoying life under the protection of a certain Captain Selwyn who paid all her bills and at certain times seen entering or leaving her house a Edgewater Excited incredulous but hoping for the worst Ruthven had posted off his o attorneys To them he naively confessed his desire to be rid of Alixe He reported her misconduct with Neer fard which he knew was a lieher pretense of mental prostration her dis appearance and his last interview with Selwyn in the card room He also gave a vivid description of that gentlemans disgusting behavior and his threats of violence during that in terviewTo of which his attorneys listen ed very attentively bade him have no fear of his life requested him to make several affidavits and leave the rest to them for the present Which he did without hearing from iBsem until Mr Hallam telegraphed kirn to come to Edgewater if he had nothing better to do- Er Hallam was a very busy very anguine very impetuous young man t ndwhen he met Ruthven at the Edge promptlythatthat he Hallam was going to New York on the next train now almost betterFt jayly his wife maintained her house hold for the Cossack sleigh with its 0ray crimson tchug had but just returned from the usual afternoon spin and the young chatelaine of Willow r Villa was now on the snow covered Itewn romping with the coachmans t huge white wolfhound Ruthven drove to the villa There were clumps of evergreens about tall cedars a bit of bushy fore land and a stretch of snqw And across this open space of snow a young girl was moving followed by a white wolfhound Once she paused hesitated looked cautiously around her Ruthven hiding behind a bush tssw her thrust her arm into a low Evergreen shrub and draw out a shin tog object that glittered like glass When she started toward the house again At first Ruthven thought she was his rife Then he was not sure and he cast his cigar away and followed slinking forward among the ever greens But the youthful fur clad figure kept straight on to the veranda of the house and Ruthven curious end determined to find out whether it Tas Alixe or not left the semishelter of the evergreens and crossed the open space just as the womans figure dis appeared around an angle of the ve randa Vexed determined not to return without some definite discovery Ruth yen stepped upon the veranda Just wound the angle of the porch he heard door opening and he hurried for Ward impatient and absolutely un afraid anxious to get one good look at his wife and be off But when he turned the angle of the porch there was no one there Only an open door confronted him with a big mild eyed wolfhound standing in the doorway looking steadily up at him Ruthven glanced somewhat dubious 3y at the dog then as the animal made 2K offensive movement he craned his fleshy neck striving to see inside the House He did seenothing very much only the same young girl still in her furs emerging from an inner rooin her arms full of dolls In his eagerness to see more Ruthven pushed past the great white dog who withdrew his head disdainfully from the unceremonious contact but quietly followed Ruthven into the house standing beside him watching him outs great limpid deerlike eyes But Ruthven no longer heeded the dog His amused and slightly sneer ing gaze was fastened on the girl in furs who had entered what appeared to bea living room to tie right and aowt down on her knees beside n coach smiling and talking coufiden tlally and quite happily to herself was placing her dolls against the wall r Then the great white dog growled rmy low anqthe girl in the fur jack its looked around and up quickly Alixo He realized it as she caught Ejs pale eyes fixed on her and she stared sprang to her feet still staring jrUon into her eyes leaped terror the Jiving horror of recognition distorting lirfnce And as she saw he meant ffto peak she recoiled shrinking away Burning in her

heard no sound of a report and she pulled the trigger again and felt another blow The second blow must have knocked her down for she found herself rising to her knees reaching for the table to andtP fell forward rose again with the acrid smell of smoke choking her and her pretty fur jacket all soaked with the warm wet stuff which now stained both hands Then she got to her knees once more groped in the rushing darkness and swayed forward falling loosely and flat And this time she did not try to riseIt was her way It had always been her way out of troublethe quickest easiest escape from what she did not choose to endure As for the man they finally contrived to drag the dog from him and lift him to the couch where he lay twitching among the dolls for awhile then stopped twitching Later in the night men came with lanterns who carried him away A doctor said that there was the usual chance for partial recovery But it was the last excitement he could ever ven ture to indulge in fi Chapter 29il NE days is the period of time allotted the human mind in which to won der at anything In New York the limit is lmuch less No tragedy can hold the boards as long as that where the bill must be renewed three times a day to hold even the passing attention of those who themselves are eternal understudies in the continuous metropolitan performance- As for Selwyn a few people noticed his presence at the funeral But even that episode was forgotten before he left the city six hours later under an Invitation from Washington which ad mitted of no delay on the score of pri vate business or of personal perplex ity for the summons was peremptory and his obedience so immediate that a telegram to Austin comprised and con cluded the entire ceremony of his leave takingLater he wrote a great many letters to Eileen Erroll not one of which he ever sent But the formality of his si lence was no mystery to her and her response was silence as profound as the stillness in her soul But deep into her young heart something new had been born t In April the armored ships left the southern drill ground and began to move northward A destroyer took Selwyn across to the great fortress in side the Virginia capes and left him there During his stay there was al most constant firing Later he contin ued northward as far as Washington but it was not until June that he tele graphed Austin- Government satisfied Appropriation certain next session Am on my way to New York Austin in his house which was now dismantled for the summer telephoned Nina at Silverside that he had been detained and might not be able to grace the festivities which were to consist of a neighborhood dinner to the younger set in honor of Mrs Ger ald But he said nothing about Sel wyn and Nina did not suspect that her brothers arrival in New York had anything to do with Austins detention As Selwyn came leisurely up the front steps Austin awaiting him fe verishly hastened to smooth the florid jocose mask over his features and walked into the room big hand extended large bantering voice undisturbed by the tremor of a welcome which filled his heart and came near filling his eyes So youve stuck the poor old gov ernment at last have you Took em all iufortsfleet and the marine cav alrySure thing said Selwyn laughing in the crushing grasp of the big fist How are you Austin Everybodys In the country I suppose glancing around at the linen shrouded furni ture How is Nina And the kids Good business And Eileen Shes all right said Austin Gad Shes really a superb specimen this summer Wheres your luggage Oh is It all here Enough mean for us to catch a train for Silverside this afternoonHas ina any room for me asked SelwynRoom Certainly I didnt tell her you were coming because if you hadnt the kids would have been hor ribly disappointed She and Eileen are giving a shindy for Gladysthats Geralds new acquisition yon know SoJf ou dotLLmlnd bUiitinsinto a f 1 fjr j J i baby show wellrun down Its only the younger bunch from Hitherwood House and Brookminster What do you say Phil t Selwyn said that he would go hesi tating before consenting A curious feeling of age and grayness had suddenly come over him a hint of fatigue of consciousness that much of life lay behind him ISo Austin went to the telephone and up his house at Silverside say Ing that hed be down that evening with a guest INina got the message just as she her tables but woman is born to sorrow and heiress to all the manIthe tears unshed in her pretty eyes Austin has thought fit to seize upon this moment to bring areIphone somebody to fill intwo girls you know The oldest Craig girl might do for one Beg her mother to let her comeWhom Is Austin bringing Eileen askedHe didnt say Cant you think of a second girl to get Isnt it vexing Of course theres nobody lef nobody ever fills In in the country Do you know Ill be driven into letting Drina sit up with usfor sheer lack of ma terial I suppose the little imp will have a fit if I suggest It and probably perish of indigestion tomorrow Eileen laughed Oh Nina do let Drina come this once It cant hurt her And so it happened that among the illy throng which clustered around he little candle lighted tables in the lining room at Silverside Driua in cstasy curly hair just above the nape Df her slim white neck and cheeks like pink fire sat between Boots and a vacant chair reserved for her tardy father For Nina had waited as long as she dared Then Boots had been summoned to take in Drina and the youthful Craig girl and as there were to have been six at a table at that particular table sat Boots decorously facing Ei leen with the two children on either hand and two empty chairs flanking EileenAt dinner Drina and the younger Craig maiden also appeared to be bent upon self destruction and Boots eyes opened wider and wider in sheer amazement at the capacity of woman in embryo for rations sufficient to maintain a small garrison Therell be a couple of reports he said to himself with a shudder like Selwyns chaosite and then therell be no more Drina and Daisy Hello He broke off astonished Well upon my word of words Phil Selwyn or Im a broker Phil exclaimed Nina Oh Aus tin and you never told us Train was late as usual observed Austin Philip and I dont mean to butt into this very grand function Hello Gerald Hello Gladys Wheres our obscure corner below the salt Nina Oh over there Selwyn had already caught sight of the table destined for him A deeper color crept across his bronzed face as he stepped forward and his firm hand closed over the slim hand offered For a moment neither spoke She could not He dared not Then Driua caught his hands and Eileens loosened in his clasp and fell For a moment neither spoke away as the child said distinctly Ill kiss you after dinner It cant be done here can it Eileen Selwyn beside Eileen had ventured on the formalities his voice unsteady and not yet his own Her loveliness had been a memory He had supposed he realized it to him self but the superb fresh beauty of the girl dazed him Taere was a strange new radiancy a living bright ness to her that seemed almost unreal Exquisitely unreal her voice too and the slightly bent head crowned with the splendor of her hair and the slow ly raised eyes two deep blue miracles tinged with the hues of paradise Are you remaining to smoke ask ed Eileen as Selwyn took her to the doorway after dinner Because if you are not Ill wait for you On the lawn out therefarther out in the starlight he whispered his voice broke my darling She bent her head passing slowly before him turned looked back her answer in her eyes her lips in every limb every line and contour of her as she stood a moment looking back Austin and Boots were talking volu bly when he returned to the tables now veiled in a fine haze of aromatic smoke Gerald stuck close to him happy ex cited shy by turns Others came up on every sideyoung frank confident fel lows nice in bearing of good speech and manner And outside waited their pretty partners of the younger set gossiping in hall pn stairs and veranda in garru lous bevies all filmy silks and laces and bright eyed expectancy The long windows were open to the veranda Selwyn with his arm through G raids walked to the railing and looked out across the fragrant starlit waste And very far away they heard the sea intoning the hymn of the four winds Then the elder man withdrew his arm and stood apart for awhile A Htf i r lB r t1 J- J rite later he descended to the lawn rcrossed it and walked straight out into the waste The song of the sea was rising now f Jn the strange little forest below deep among the trees elfin lights broke out He halted to listen across the unseen Briar Water then vanished He halted to listen He looked long and steadily into the dark ness around him Suddenly he saw hera pale blur in the dusk EileenIs 1 Philip She stood waiting as he came up through the purple gloom of the moorland the stars brilliancy silvering her waitingyielding in pallid silence to his arms crushed in them looking into his eyes dumb wordless Then slowly the pale sacrament changed as the wild rose tint crept into her face Her arms clung to his shoulders higher tightened around his neck And from her lips she gave into his keeping soul and body guiltless as God pave it to have and to hold be yond such incidents as death and the eternity that no man clings to save in the arms of such as she TILE END Majority and Plurality In politics tho plurality is the great est of more than two numbers and is also the excess of the highest number of votes cast for any one candidate over the next highest number When a candidate receives out of 1000J votes cast 4000 and two other candidates receive respectively 3500 and 25CO the first is elected by a plurality though be has received less than a majority of the whole vote and be h said to bavt a plurality of 500 votes If the numbers are 6000 3000 ancr 1000 the majority Is 2000 and th plurality is 3000 A majority therefore must he more than half the en tire vote cast and a candidates ioa jorlty is then the difference between the number of votes he received unit the combined number of votes cast fur all other candidates his plurality b the difference between his own nuiu ber and the number received by th candidate nearest to him OftentJrnev a candidate receives a plurality but not a majority

a p TRLS FOR ANIMAlS Curious Custom That Prevaiiet In the Middle Ages PROSECUTED FOR HOMICIDE A Bull That Killed a Man Found Guilty Sentenced to Death and Exe cuted Fate of a Cock That Was Charged With Having Laid an Egg Among the many curious customs Of the past Is recorded a singular feature of the jurisprudence of the middle ages when animals were Indicted to injuries inflicted upon human beings The custom was not abolished it France until the middle of the eight tenth century and the French court records show that at least ninetytwo trials topk place between 1120 and 1741There Is some Biblical precedent fort these proceedings for in the twenty first chapter of Exodus one finds If nox gore a man or a woman that they die then the ox shall be stoned and his flesh shall not be eaten An early instance of the c stow was In 1314 when a bull escaped from a farmyard in a village in France in the duchy of Valois and gored a man to death The Count of Valois being In formed of the case directed that the t bull be captured and formally prose cuted for homicide This was done and evidence was given by persons who bad seen the man attacked and killed The bull was thereupon sea tenced to suffer death which was in flicted by strangulation after whicb the carcass was suspended from a tree by the hind legs In 1386 a sow was executed in the quare of Falaise for having caused death of a child and three years t te a horse was condemned to death Dijon for having killed a man in a sow and her six young ones were tried at Lavegny on the charge of having killed and partially eaten a child The sow was convicted and condemned to death but the little ones were acquitted on the ground of their extreme youth and inexperience the bad example of their mother and the absence of direct evidence of their feastYOne of the most grotesque of these trials took place in Basel when n farmyard cock was tried on the ab surd charge of having laid an egg It was contended in support of the prosecution that eggs laid by cocks were of inestimable worth for use in certain magical preparations that a sorcerer would rather possess a cocks egg than the elixir of life and that Satan em ployed ar ttcbeato mtcirsirach eggs l from which proceeded winged serpent most dangerous to mankind The prisoners advocate admitted the facts of the case but contended that no evil intention had been proved cud that no evil result had taken plays Besides the laying of an egg was fill Involuntary act and as such was not t punishable by law also there was nn record of the devil having made a rom pact with an animal The public prosecutor stated in reply that the evil onp sometimes entered into animals us in the case of the swine which drowned themselves in the sea of Galilee So the poor creature was convicted not as a cock but as a sorerer or perhaps the devil in the form of a cock whereupon the bird and the egg that was attributed to it were solemnly burned at the stake Even stranger than this were the I proceedings instituted in 1445 and 1487 against certain beetles which had made havoc In the vineyards of St Julian Advocates were named on behalf of the vine growers and the beetles respectively but by a singular coinci dence the insects disappeared when cited to answer for the mischief they had done and the proceedings were in consequence abandoned That was in 1445 In 1487 how complaintjwasgeneral of the bishop of Maurienne who named a judge and also an advo cate to represent the beetles A com promise was finally agreed upon wherein the vine growers consented to cede the beetles certain fields to their exclusive use Some time after the beetles through their attorney pro tested that there was a right of way through these fields which would be to their detriment Consequently the case had to begin again but how it ended Is not known owing to the muti lation of the recordsF C Evans in New York Post Lotteries The first scheme for the distribution of prizes by

climate is always treach erous The midday sun may be broil Ing hot but after dark the air is soon chilled and one is liable to contract a coldSeveral of the Spanish cities stand upon tile crests of tall hills where such climatic changes occur after nightfall When as a boy at the grand opera I saw Spaniards In Carmen or The Barber of Seville toss their long cloaks or capes about their faces I assumed that the act was intended to disguise themto hide their faces Nothing of the sort The Spaniard like the Italian of the Alpine regions always covers his mouth after sun lungstromtben1Curiously
