A young lady of pleasing ways en

franchise, but the excuse proved of no
avail, as all were eligible to vote who
possessed 55 cents, and the disposition
to squander it for a magazine for
which she was soliciting subscriptions,
and as he had these requirements his
vote was duly cast. This same young
lady visited Princeton with a like prop
osition last year and the year before
that, when she was working fier way
through the university, and as she is
still at it we presume that she will
