When the dreams are ended that were
And the victory that had seemed so
Has been turned, somehow, into sore defeat-
When you've done your Iwst after plan
When you've had your chance and have

When you shrink from the gaze of the
And wonder why you had hopes be

The airy castles around you fall,

Fling your challenge forth and do bet

Prospective Guests for
D. A. R. Conference
AM) THE MISSOURI.
Mr. Taft probably hit the sentiment
of the majority of the people of the
middle west, when he declared, before
the Deep Waterway Conference at Chi
cago that we want a "complete system
of inland waterways."' Yet President
Kavanaugh's statement: '"Let us begin
with the Mississippi and let other rivers
and other sections follow as soon as pos
sible" undoubtedly found support among
the 3,000 delegates.
This fake notion of economy, Mis-
sourians will not be long in setting to
rest. The commercial value of such a
cross-state highway precludes the idea
of leaving the Missouri out of the first
great plan of river improvement. If it
comes to states paying part of the cost,
Missouri would be fully compensated in
lands reclaimed from frequent inunda
tions. Now we have it that engineers be
lieve if the Mississippi alone is improv
ed, its channel will have to be dredged
constantly for Missouri silt and be
guarded by a line of tugs against Mis
souri snags. There can be but little
doubt that this would bo the true state
of affairs. The proper course is to im
prove the Missouri. Kansas, Nebraska
and the other states of the Northwest
would welcome the move and could be
counted upon to do their part further
up. The cost of confining the Missouri
mile for mile would not be much greater
than that of controlling the Mississippi;
and there is 110 reason why penny-wis
dom should obtain in matters -o inti
mately connected with public welfare.
Let the old road across Missouri be
lebuilt! Not even the railroad men
object. They realize that it is time for
good canals. Already the railroads are
crowded almost to the limit. They are
complaining of lowered dividends, when
there are some clashes of freight that
ought to have still cheaper rate. Grain,
for instance, must have less handling
if it is longer to compete in the mar
kets of other countries Far-seeing
railroad men see in the future a state
of congestion we are likely to overlook.
How is the question of transportation
to le met Since the railroads con
fess their inability we shall have to turn
to canals, a Europe ha- done. The
time for waterways is at hand, and let
the ditch from the lake to the Gulf
K- 14 feet or 24. The Missouri, the
real Father of the Waters must share
in the improvement.
Consigned to the verbal inferno by the
Bookman are the following popular
"Along these lines."
"Dandy" (as an adjective).
"Exclusive" (as a social term).
"He (she, it) struck a new note."
"In touch with" (except as a techni
cal term in military or naval discourse).
"Locate" (as an intransitive verb).
"Nom dc plume."
"Phone," for telephone, cither as noun
"Pleased to meet you."
"Sur le tapis."
"The four hundred."
"Up to date."
The Bookman's lessons in etiquette
are to continue. They have, somehow,
a tinge of snobbishness.
A pupil of one of the public schools
in Chicago sends this communication:
Dear Sir: In our school this morning
an amusing dialogue took place.
A primary teacher of Chicago, wishing
to impress on her pupils the necessity of
greater quiet, said:
"I am a great deal larger than any of
you, yet I don't make any noise when I
walk around the room."
"Perhaps,'' remarked little seven-vear-
old Kenneth, "you don't wear shoes."
"Oh, yes I do," quicklv replied the
teacher; just look. Did you ever see
any larger than mine?"
Kenneth surveyed them carefully.
"Yes," he replied slowly, "once in a

Beer vs. Water.
The remark of our distinguished ex
mayor, foreign tourist and commenta
tor on thing abroad ("Dearo" Fitzger
ald) that he found the price of a glass
of beer ia Germany to le only two
cents, while water is ten cents, deserves
elucidation. No doubt Itottled mineral
water is as cheap and as pure in Ger
many as it is anywhere. In German
hotels, where foreign tourists most do
congregate, the managers have a habit
of making water as expensive and as
difficult to get as possible. It helps
their wine and beer business. Boston

The best time to take a cold bath for

Let the cold water flow in, or, letter

draw the cold water at night, allowing
it to stand in the tub all night. It is
then about the temperature of the room.

NE of the wonders of St. Louis
is the echo in the old Court
house rotunda at Broadway
and Market street. If one stands upon
the stone floor directly beneath the
apex of the dome and speaks in an
ordinary tone he will hear it repeated
and echoed from point to point above
his head and the echo sounds loud in
the hollow of the dome.
In the Courthouse in Minneapolis,
Minn., is a similar echo, but more won
derful, according to the following ac
count of it written by a correspondent
from that city:
"Minneapolis has the eighth or at
least the ninth wonder of the world.
Lurking somewhere in the rotunda of
its Courthouse is an echo which de
fies all the laws of phonetics and ac-
coustics by working backward. A series
of syllables addressed to this echo wih
be returned clearly and distinctly, but
reversed in their order.
"So far as the public is concerned
this phenomenon has only just been
discovered, and its discovery was an
accident. A man who recently came to
.Minneapolis to live was engaged in
showing a party of friends through the
Courthouse several days ago, when it
was suggested that one of the women
in the party, a noted vocalist, should
sing a few notes to test the accoustic
conditions of the rotunda. The sinner
was standing then about twelve feet
to the west of the statue of the Father
of Waters and she sounded four notes
of the scale in full tones "do, me, sol,
Almost immediately the sounds were
repeated, and so like in tone that the
singer and all of her friends supposed
for a moment that some person was
Other tests showed that the repeti
tion of sounds really was caused by an
echo, and then it was noticed that the
echo was reversed. Instead of coming
back in the original order, the syllable
uttered last would 1h echoed first, and
when the young woman would sing "do,
me, sol, do," the echo would reply, "do,
sol, me, do." St. Louis Post -Dispatch.
Shopping in Columbia.
To the Editor of the University MIsour!n-
I have wondered whether other womea
encounter the difficulties in shopping
here that I have?
I have shopped in much smaller town
and in large cities but I have never
encountered saleswomen so irritating u
in Columbia dry goods stores. I wonder
that the employers do not notice and
adjust tfiese things. Such experience
make one long to avoid these unpleaa
antnesses by shopping out-of-town.
I have been shouted at from across the
store and from the rear to the middle
of the store by saleswomen too indolent
or too thoughtless to come any closer or "'
to remain silent until I was within rea
sonable speaking distance. In one case
in particular I was challenged with "Did
you get what you wanted " the length
of the store after I had made my pur
chases and was passing out.
Not less irritating is the other ex
treme. I have stood and waited at a
counter while a saleswoman unconcern
edly rolled up dress goods and replaced
it on the shelf. Another saleswoman I
encountered lolled on the pattern coun
ter and did not change position when I
asked to see a style book. "It's down
there," she vouchsafed me, with an in
different side movement of her head
toward the right. Another saleswoman
and her customer were covering the book
with some dress trimmings and I stood
helpless. Finally I left without being
Saleswomen can make friends for their
business house if they know how to be

Carnival-Week in the Cities.
To the Editor of the University Mlssourlin:
Far along in the night the street
cleaners are at work so that when Sun
day comes no evidence will remain to
tell the tale of the reign of carnival
which has endured from Tuesday till
Sunday of last week in St. Louis," Kan
sas City and many other of the larger
ciues 01 tne United States. The con
fetti is swept up and burned, discarded
horns, broken "feather ticklers," false
faces, masks, all signs of the "revelry
by night" are carried away and made
the funeral pyre of an era the like of
which comes but one a year and that
once is "carnival week." That week ia
the circus day of a large city, but on
a grander scale in proportion as the
city is larger.
Strange, isn't it, that some people
do not approve of carnival week? Some
people, however, do not approve of cir- I
cus day. It interferes with business.
Oh, that almighty dollar again! Our
pity is with that unfortunate individual
whose life is entomlied within the four
walls which enclose his business; whose
eye can see none of the things in life
which are really worth while, whose
ear can hear no sound save the elusive
jingle of money.
