Charity has assumed many forms
in the last few years, but it is doubt
ful whether it has eer asbimied a
more practical form than in the case
of a man named Hawkins in Philadel
phia. Hawkins was a wealthy man.
Among other posessions, he had
eighteen houses valued at about $4,000
each. Before his death he paid off
all liens upon the property and in his
will bequeathed his houses to the
tenants who had occupied them and
paid rent to him for many years. By
this means these eighteen families
have been put in possession of prop

HIS NEIGHBORS CHICKENS.
The old question of chickens that
board in the gardens of neighbors has
come up again in Kansas City. This
time the neighbor did not kill the
fowls, nor did his wife start a neigh
borhood squabble with the owner of
the birds. The chickens just kept on
living at home and taking their meals
When, however, Mr. Neighbor de
cided to move, he cooped the chickens
and took them along. ".Mrs. Owner
owns no part of them except the little
chicks she started with," he said,.
"All the rest of them came from my
yard and belong to me."
The puzzle is now which of the
claimants owns the controlling inter
est. Possibly the poultry department
of the University can decide this far
CURRENTS FOR SLEEP.
Experiments are being conducted at
Columbia University to try to prove
the truth of the theory that a person
sleeps best when his head is pointing
toward the north magnetic pole. The
supposition is that the magnetic cur
rents between the poles will pa-s
through the body without great re
sistance and a person is soothed to
The idea is not new or important.
D'Arsonval, a French scientist of two
centuries ago, claimed to have proved
the truth of the theory. But Edison
says he is skeptical about it. Natur
ally that would make us doubt it.
But a knowledge of the course of
the magnetic currents is not neces
sary for sound sleeu. Plenty of hard
work and vigorous exercise accompa
nied by a good digestion and a clear
conscience are great agents to kill in
somnia. Give a man all these and he
will usually sleep well even though
his head might be in a southwest cor
ner and all these magnetic waves cut
ting cross-paths through his body.
Perhaps there is not a student in
the University who could tell how
much power the magnetic currents
have to interfere with sleep. But
every student can give positive proof
of one thing that prevents sleep.

what good are they if the students
don't yell? When a yell leader says
to yell the "New Yell" or nine rahs
for the "Tigers," he means it and his

noticeable lack of yelling Saturday one
would think the yell leader had in
structed the rooters to keep quiet and
not to yell. What if we did whip Cen
tral by a large score, we ought to get
into practice so when a sure enough
game is played we will know how to
yell. Of course Missouri is going to
win this year but there will be times
when we will have to yell and yell
hard too. By all means back your yell
