not contineu to places bcre and there

From Mich School to Harvard.
Charlie Durham, who last month
graduated from the Rock Island High
school as valedictorian, has just re
ceived notice of his admission to
Harvard university, he having been
examined at Minneapolis during the
last week in June. 'J his is an excel
lent showing for our High school,
for Prof. Leslie and for his assistants.
It is custumary for an applicant to
study a year or two at a preparatory
school before attempting bis college
examination, but Charlie wanted to
go fishing np in the Yellowstone
park and thought he might as well
get his work done first.
He was examined in chemistry,
physics, algebra, history, plane and
solid geometry, Knglish, Latin, Her
man and Greek. The examinations
for Harvard are said to be as difficult
and exhaustive as those of any uni
versity in the United States and per
haps more so.
An interesting coincidence con
nected with the success of young
Durham is that he will enter Har
vard with James W. Farley, whoso
father, James B. Farley, was Col. C.
W. Durham's classmate through Har
vard. The Durhams are Charles W.
and Charles B., and the Farleys
