His Real Victory;
The writer has seldom *itriessed
deeper feeling or more enthilisastic ap
plause from *a student audiefice than
that which greeted the confession of a
southern student who arose before the
men of his university and confessed
dishonesty in debate. The young man
had recently won the sophomorejun.
lor prize debate, but later in chapel he
asked permission to make a statement
to the student body, saying: "I over
heard my opponent rehearsing his de
bate in an adjoining room, and, al
though I stopped my ears mnd refused
to listen, my roommate took down the
point. Afterward the temptation was
so subtle and strong that I took the
notes and arranged my debate accord
ingly and won. But," said the stu
dent, with feeling, "I stole It, and I
have come to plead the forgiveness of
the student body."-Christlan Herald.

Pretty Thin Milk.
Old Captain Josbua Ketcham of
Amtyvlle,. N. Y., was very much be
loved by the summer residents who
used to sail with him on the bay and
catch bluefish. There was always a
rfreshing.fla'or of the seai in his talk.
One day, when a party-of city men
were sailing with him, the conversa
tin turned on the difficulty of getting
good milk in Amityville, and they ap
pealed to the captain to know why that
was the case.
'WelI." said Captain Joshua, "lt's
