CLEOPATRA DID IT FIRST.
It is our friend of Journalism Week,
S. E. Kiser, who makes the discovery
that, as ho says, Cleopatra "beat
Emmaliue to it." He has found a
speech of the Egyptian heroine in
"Antony and Cleopatra" which reads: '
"Sir. I will eat no meat. I'll not drink. '
I'll not sleep neither; this mortal
house I'll ruin,
Do Caesar what he can. Know, sir,

A HOLIDAY COXVEN'TIOX.
The interest of American students
in missions is demonstrated by the fact I
that already the credentials for the
full quota of 4,000 delegates to the
National Student Volunteer Convention
has been sent in, and many states and
schools are asking that they be per
mitted to send more some even twice

the Kansas City officials that Missouri
be permitted to send 100 men and wo- '
men. Other schools are asking simi-
When so many students will take a
part of their holiday, paying their
own expenses, and go to a convention
to discuss the missionary movement,
it may be taken as an indication that
the average student can show as much
spirit concerning a missionary con
vention as a footbal came.

CUTTING DOWN THE FUEL BILL.
With so much conversation of fuel
in progress on paper and perhaps
some conversation going on in the for-
ests and mines, we might get into the
spirit of the movement and conserve
our winter's supply of coal. This kind
of conservation will at least cut down
our fuel bills and that, no doubt,
would be more interesting than a con- !
servation of the entire supply 6T fuel.
One great secret fuel economy is
written in and between the lines in the
following remark: Fuel is often wast
ed because housekeepers do not real
ize that when water is once boiling it
can become no hotter, no matter how
great the heat. How often gas is
I turned on or coal heaped up to make
added heat when the water is already
' , . ... . . . .,
at the boiling point! This is waste
, of fuel."
When more coal is needed, put on
only a little at a time. (This advice
is to cooks, not Columbia landladies).
low the top of the range to get red
hot. You can neither cook nor bake '
' as well, and most of the fuel is used
in sending heat up the flue. More than
that a rpd hot stov ,-,, a wenrimr '
out of the stove.
Economy can also be practiced in
feeding the furnace. Regulate your
fire according to the weather; when it
is hot, have only a small fire, but when
il getS cold spread out tne flre and
heap on the coal, opening all drafts, i
In mild weather it is not necessary to
shake down the furnace' 0nly rake
down part of the ashes and clinkers
and the fire will still be giving plenty
Didyou know you can burn ashes? I
Remove the clinkers from your ashes,
sprinkle them with water and put '
them on the flre after a good blaze'
is started. In this way you can burn j
your ashes again and again, until all
the carbon is removed. They will hold
the fire a long time, giving out a sufli-
ciently steady, white heat.
Practice these suggestions and oth
ers. In other words, study your fire
and 'our coal WD will not rise so
fast during the winter.
