WtJuld have "Johnny" kill himself ir> the clev
erest couplet and the most grewsome manner.
In "The Lampoon" was a picture of a trolley
accident, with these verses:
The man who runs the trolley car.
'!:. my! but he's a joker!
His aunt ivas i ping on the track.
And this is bow he woke her.
Th- collegian's regard tor his dinner Is no less
leal than talked of. He . .-ver tires of "knock
big** his eating place. This subject is, of course,
often discussed by his comic paper. The follow
ing from the University of Pennsylvania "Punch
Bowl" is an illustration:
Once a sly man
Met a pieman
At the Houston Club;
Said the sly man
To the pieman.
Drop that awful grub.
Said the pieman
To the sly man.
That's a source of wealth.

The editorials of the comic paper are often
well worth reading, even by the non-collegian.

of the election removes from Columbia any
stigma of (S) Lownesa which she may have
retained, and does away with the possibility of
any punning quibbles about the Depths to

It brings certain disadvantages for us. No
more can the budding poet invoke apt Allitera

ous, stalwart sons of Scth. And how horrible
it would be if we should have to condud ir
"Six Columbias" with the oncheerable poly
syllables of our acting president in place of the
Inspiring monosyllable of the Mayor-elect.
Romance is another good subject. "The lam
poon" represents a girl as eaying: "How much
better it is to have a chap alone than a chap
eron — don't you think so?"
And the Cornell "Widow" has this couplet:
How careful all fond lovers are
Never to be harmed.
It's very seldom that a pair

The Princeton "Tiffor" has this mock editorial
from the Princeton college daily. "The Prince

NOTES OF THE STAGE.
One of the unique mechanical effects now to
be seen on a New-York stage Is shown In the
first art of "The stubbornness of Geraldlne,"
the Clyde Fiu-h play In which Miss Mannering
is appealing before larpe houses at the Carrick.
This first act setting exhibits the deck of an
ocean liner, and it rocks with the Ion? rollers
In a most natural fashion. In fact. Miss Man
in ring's entrance is a precipitate one, induced
by a sudden pitch of the Lu.it.
