as its material development.
( t course, there are dillieulties. and
we are manly enough to see them and
seek to mend them. We are developing
a iie individuality which is a line and
splendid thing, but we confuse individ
uality with isolation. We are so proud
of our individuality that we want to
ep.n.ite the hcaxeiis alove from our
earth lieiie.it h with a pall of filthy
Miioke: and the waters under the earth

University the Center.
Yet we are growing into a great me-Tropul'i-.
not only as others see us. but
us we sec ourselves. We "nave a noble

Dr. Houston outlined the educational

and addresses hvere made by R. S.

Dr. Harrison was not originally chos

was called out of town.
PORCUPINE A REAL HOG
Impales Apples on His Quills to Keep
Them from His Mate.
XKW YORK. Dec. 18. lack and Jill,
the pair of porcupines in the Bronx
7.k.. are extremely fond of apples, and
Vtween them eat a quart or so every
day. A l.ig shipment of winter apples
from up the State arrived yesterday,
and Keeper Daly thought he'd give the
iiily pair a treat. Accordingly he
einntied a s-niall measure, alwut two
ipiarts. into the inclosure.
Xow .lack, the head of the house, is
inclined t.i lie more than a hedge hog.
fsH-,-i.illy at meal times. With the
sl,,u waddle peculiar to his kind, he
seized a lig pippin and started oil".
Then he suddenly rcineniliered that it
was dangerous to leave so much fruit
lM-hind. and. Mattering the apples, he
i nihil on his hack on top of them. At
least ten quills pierced as many apples,
.mil. carrying his load, impaled, he
scrambled over to a stump.
The next installment of this inter
esting -tory will tell how -lack got the
apples off his quills.

I The only institutions that report a
i decrease in the numlier of scientific
students arc Harvard. Kaiisa. Nebraska
and Virginia, and of these the first men
tioned is the only one that shows a loss
as compared with 1002. of course, owing
to the fact that the baccalaureate degree
is now required for admission to the
llariard engineering M-hool-.. The gain
l in this department since 1002 at Michi
gan has Ik-ch fiom .i07 to l.:l.i2. The
largest numlier of students of this class
is still found at Cornell. Michigan and
Illinois being the only others that at
tract more than one thousand students
to their scientific schools: these are fol
lowed by Yale. Ohio. Wisconsin. Cali
fornia, l'enn-ylvariia. Minnesota. Col
umbia, and Missouri. Nebraska and
Princeton, each of these universities
having more than the hundred students
in attendance on their scientific schools.
The attendance on the schools of law
connected with the universities under
consideration shows, in general, a fair
increase over lint year, whereas in the
case of the medical schools there would
le a distinct loss if it were not for the
fact that several independent schools
had been absorlied by universities in the
course of the year; in fact, there are at
present no less than alxmt 800 less stu
dents of medicine in attendance on the
institutions creditnl with medical
schools in the tables of lioth 1008 and
1002. than there were in the latter year.
while in the ca f the law schools
there has been a gain of aliout ."00 stu

fornia, and New York University. The
agricultural schools show a highly en
couraging increase, Minnesota this jear
having an enrolment of more than one
thoil-aiiil. The schools of architi-cturc
have likewise grown, the largest lieing
those connected with Illinois, Pennsyl
vania. Columbia, and Cornell. The laig
et schools of commerce are at New
York University and Pennsylvania, tin
latter alo having the largest uiiiiiIht
of students of dentistry.
Syracuse leads in music. Columbia in
pharmacy, and Ohio in veterinary medi
cine. Columbia continues to head the
list of schools of education. Teachers
College having an enrolment this year
of 050 students.
Northwestern. Stanford, and Syracuse
are the only institutions that experi
enced a loss of students in the summer
session of 1008, the Yale summer courses
having lieen withdrawn in 10W. In
some instances, the growth in summer
attendance has been noteworthy: for
example, at Wisconsin, where no less
hall 1.027 students were enrolled, as
against (!."! in 1007: at Columbia, where
I there has been an incrase from 1JH1 to
1..V12 in two years, and at Indiana,
which reports a gain from 721 to 1.005
in a single year. The Columbia figures
are exclusive of students taking sum
mer work in surveying. geodey. lor
mining. In addition to Chicago, the
following institutions attracted more
than one thousand students hist sum
mer, ranking numerically in the order
given: Columbia. Harvard. Michigan.
Wisconsin, and Indiana.
Comparing the total enrolment of the
various institutions for 100S with that
of the previous year, it is seen that, in
spite of the prevailing economic de
pression, only two institutions. Harvard
and Stanford, show a slight loss in en
rolment. The greatest gains in terms
of student units, inclusive of the sum
mer session, have been made by Chi
cago. Minnesota. Columbia, and Wiscon
sin. Indiana. Pennsylvania. Cornell, and
California, each one of these having
gained more than 400 students: omitting
the summer session attendance, the
largest increase have been registered by
Columbia. Minnesota. Cornell, and
Northwestern. Wisconsin. Pennsylvania,
and Ohio, in the order given, the growth
in each case lieing more than IKMI stu
dents. Gains at Eastern Colleges.
The gains in attendance at a numlier
of prominent Eastern Colleges for men
and for women, and of two technology
schools, are represented in the following
