Rule for Picnics
There are certain principles of con
duct with nward to picnics which it is
well to observe For one tiling never
go eirlv 10 i picnic If yon do go early
yon will have to carry tubs containing
icecream fieezers packed in ice pails
of water rugs and garden beats and
perform a great many other laborious
tasks
A picnic is a good deal like coasting
except that it is the other way around
the hard work comes before the fun
stead of after it When a picnic is over
and most of the things arc eaten up it
is not much work to sweep dishes to
gether and carry them away Dut the
getting of them there is terrible So it
is a point of reasonable conduct to come
a little late
Another point is to decline nothing
That offers in the way of food Dont j
lefuse rolls on the expectation of getting i
sandwiches because you may not get I
the sandwiches Keep the rolls yon
needn t eat them if you get the sand
wiches Another point avoid conflict
ing contusions upon your next neighbor
by grabbing wildly at tiie olive dish rIf
you do thus grab for it he is likely to do
the same thing at the same moment
Cruel bodily injuries have resulted from
t his course of action The danger arises
jrom the fiBt that olives are the stall of
life at picnics

Gentlemmi in waiting upon ladies
should occasionally furtively bolt a
haiulwick as a matter of prevision since
the eatables may all be consumed or the
inevitable rainstorm come up before the
ladies are fully waited upon Any one
can get through a picnic day safely and
comfortably without ice cream maca
roons frosted cake or other delicacies
hut sustenance of some sort he must
have For this reason as one passes be
hind a tree in the course of his admira
ble struggle to see that the ladies havo
everything he should rapidly swallow a
sandwich
With atteution to a few prudent de
tails such as these picnics may be de
prived of fully onehalf of their terrors

Procession of Coats at Cambridge
The boat procession at Cambridge was
unusually successful this year The
afternoon was delightfully fine and the
very large crowd looked extremely pic
turesque The boats were as usual
prettily decorated The leading crews
camo in for a hearty reception while
the final scene when all the crews with
uplifted oars cheered one another in
turn was particularly striking The
success of the afternoon however was
the Lady Margaret boat which con
tained two men and six empty seats to
which wero affixed sticks with placards
bearing the legend Sent Down while
another notice stated that further par
ticulars might be obtained of Messrs
Caldecott and Cox
TI18 Johnians had celebrated their
bumps with such vigor thit nine out of
the sixteen men in the two l > oatshad
been sent down It certainly seems a
very strong step and it is unfortunate
that it should have had to be taken
