Basket ball practice began this week
and, unless all signs fail, we would say
that this year is destined to bo a record
breaker in the great indoor game at W.
A. C. Fifteen men are turning out for
practice regularly from five to six each
evening. Captain Fulton is in charge of
the work at present, but Coach Sweeley
will take it up as soon as the football
A very lively interest is being mani
fested in the game this season, and the
abundance and quality of the material
at hand is most encouraging to the lov
ers of the great winter sport. Of last
year's championship team we have lost
only one man, Robinson. Smead, Smith,
Riohau and Capt. Fulton will battle for
their old positions. Among the second
team of last year we have some men that
will be hard to beat in the persons of
Jones, Ockerman, MaeKay, Arm 6 eld,
Manchester, Maloney, and others.
Among the new men we are expecting
things from Lund, Hieberling, Agnew,
and some others who have had basket
ball training beforo coming here.
The management is making calcula
tions on having several inter-collegiate
games this year if possible. So far in the
history of the game here, only one inter
collegiate game has been played. That
was with Whitman college last year.
This year it is hoped that we can arrange
to meet the U. of L and the larger insti
tutions of Washington. We will very
probably play one or two games with the
Spokane High School, and perhaps some
other of the high schools near-by.
Manager Joe Brislawn has opened up
communication with the different insti
tutions, and the schedule will probably
be ready for publication in a few weeks.
The young ladies have not begun to
practice yet so we are unable just at this
time to say what the prospects are for
that department of basket ball. How
ever, we can say that two of our old vet
erans, Misses BeBS Vermilye and Mac
Onßtot, are with us, and are taking hold
of the organization of a team with the
Higher Education in the West.
President Harper of the University of
Chicago, writing in the North American
Review for October, presents a discus
cussion of special interest to Western
college students. In a comparison of
Western with Eastern institutions the
writer maintains that education in the
West is more modern, more natural,
more practical and possibly more serious
than college work in the East. It is
more modern because Western students
as a rule do not hold themselves above
the civil law, nor do they regard the fac
ulty as natural enemies. Further than
this, the West is more advanced because
of the progress of co-education. Higher
education in the West is more natural,
says President Harper, for the reason
that students spend less money than
their Easteru brothers, and also because
of the prevailing democratic spirit. We
are more practical than Eastern colleges
because our young people enter college
to prepare for some definite end and not
because it is the fashion. £ Finally, if the
spirit of college education in the West is
more serious than in the East, it is, as
is shown by the author, on account of
its more modern, more natural and more
practical nature.^ Well worth reading is

No matter how healthy or strong: a woman
may be she cannot help but be benefited by
taking Dr. Pierre's favorite Prescription
to prepare for the event.
This is what one mother says:
"With ft heart overflowing with gratitude I
will endeavor to write you. It is nearly two
years ago since I first wrote to you for advice
regarding my health which was then very bad,"
writes Mrs. I* Poore, of Hinesdale, Ky., to Dr.
R. V. Tierce, chief consulting surgeon of the
Invalids' Hotel and Surgical Institute, at Buffalo,
N. Y. "I have described my sufferings in other
letters to you. After receiving your advice and
the ' Common Sense Medical Adviser ' I bought
some of y.our 'Favorite Prescription,' and to-day
am a well woman and the proud mother of a
dear little boy."
Backed up by over a third of a century
of remarkable cures, a record such as no
other remedy for the diseases and weak
nesses peculiar to women ever attained,
the proprietors and makers of Dr. Pierces
Favorite Prescription now feel fully war
ranted in offering to pay $500 in legal
money of the United States, for any case of
Leucorrhea, Female Weakness, Prolapsus,
or Falling of Womb which they cannot
cure. All they ask is a fair and reasonable
trial of their means of cure.
Their financial responsibility is well
known to every newspaper publisher and
druggist in the United States, with most of
whom they have done business for over a
third of a century.
How to live in health and happiness, is
the general theme of Dr. Pierces Common
