J. 8ILA8 HARRIS INVOLVED.
Said to Have Offered to Sell Lincoln
Institute Position. ,
President B. F. Allen, of Lincoln in
stitute, of this city, and Professors J.
H. Oarnett and J. S. Moten, together
with Roy McDonald, a negro student
at the school, were called into the
grand Jury room to-day. It is said
that the presence of the colored men
has to do with a story affecting J. Sling
Harris, of Kansas City. Harris is a
member of the board of regents of
Lincoln institute. Mr. J. H. Brede
mann, of this city, who is a member
of the present grand jury, was one of
the white Instructors at the institute,
but lost his position when the whito
men were dropped last spring. The
story Is that Harris offered to have
Bredemann reinstated for the sum of
$330. It Is said that Governor Doek
ery has requested the resignation of
Harris from the state board, but that
Harris has refused to resign.

English Slang in France.
Never have the French made use
of bo many English words as during
the past season. The world of "sport"
began the practice some years ago,
and It had this excuse, that it drew
its horses, its "trainers" and Its
"Jockeys" from the other side of the
channel. But nowadays French so
ciety indulges in a positive debauch
of exotic terms. One goes no longer
"sur le champ des courses," but "on
the turf." The horses go round the
"ring." The "donneurs de PariB" are
"bookmakers." The "gross pontes,"
"plungers." A "thoroughbred" (pur
sang) is no longer "bolteux," but
"broken down." Paris letter.

from the twenty-second chapter of
Genesis, upon the temptation of Abra

teacher told them in as simple lan
guage as possible the story of the go

ready she explained that Abraham saw
a kid caught in the bushes and took
that and killed It. There was an awed

with eyes wide with horror: "A
