Missouri University Students
Make It a Social Feature.
AGRICULTURAL PARTIES THE RAGE

Agriculture is "the rage" sit the Uni
versity of Mis.souri, says a Colombia
(Mo.) dispatch to the Kansas City ytar.
Since last September this department
has advanced with such strides that it
has surpassed all other studies in popu
larity. Mer.ilers of the faculty are en
rolling themselves as students in order
to enter the poultry department. Stu
dents calling themselves Shorthorns"
have itiaupuratitl a series of scial en
tertainments to be given this year and
will be known as "agricultural parties."
Recently a party of girls from the St.
Louis 'swell set" arrived at the univer
sity to enter the dairy department. A
few days p. go the students adopted an
agricultural yell, and the other day at
n mass meeting preparations were com
pleted for an agricultural journal, con
ducted solely by students, and an ed
itorial staff was elected.
In the last three months letters have
been receivin! from Egypt. Turkey,
Scotland. Canada. Mexico. South Amer
ica and other foreign countries from
prospective students notifying tne uni
versity authorities of their intention
to enter the agricultural department
next year. A colony of students is
coming from L-gypt. Ine party will
be accompanied by two Turkish stu
dents, who will enter the agricultural
department. The popularity of the
Missouri college in Egypt is largely
due to the efforts of tiobra Saleru, an
Egyptian student from Alexandria, who
recently entered Missouri university.
He has been sending circulars broad
cast throughout Egypt advising hi
countrymen to come to the University
of Missouri. Their object is to intro
duce American methods of scientific
husbandry in their native hind.
An unexpected result of the agricul
tural rage is its development into a so
cial factor. An 'agricultural party" by
the students last week was an innova
tion. It was by the old students, known
is "Shorthorns," to the new students.
who recently began the winter term.
The "Shorthorns," assisted by the girls
of the dairy department, received in the
Plate horticultural building. A social
innovation was intrtducod during the
evening in the form of a magic lantern
lecture by ( T. Hartley of the bureau
of plant industry at Washington, who
went to Columbia for the purpose. The
lct lire was on "corn breeding," the
speaker detailing the most improved
methods. Refreshments were served by
the dairy girls, assisted by the "horti
All the "co-eds" in the agricultural
department call themselves "girl farm
ers." They make up about 'Jo per cent
flf the students and rival the "Short
horns" in agricultural spirit. A major
ity prefer dairying, and this depart
ment has the largest enrollment of girls
in the agricultural school. The "co
eds" are also interested in stock judg
ing, and several of them have already
manifested such ability in this line that
their clnxs grades equal those of the
boy students. A special feature of tin?
dairy department is cheese and butter
making, at wiiicb the young womeii
easily surpass the young men.
The students of the agricultural de
partment recently adopted a class yell

the "agricultural yell" and is as fol

JAPANESE AND RUSSIANS.
Senntor Ileveridite Tells of Their
racial hatred between the Itus
and Japanese is illustrated by
examples in Senator Albert J.
Iteveridge's hook. "The Russian Ad
vance." This hatred is mixed with
contempt. "At a Moscow dinner ta
ble." writes Senator Revcrldge, "the
progress of the Japanese was remarked
ami the word "civilization" applied to
"Civilization!" quickly spoke up a
banker, with an eager spirit not in
keeping with his calm calling. 'Civi
lization! You don't, mean that. You
mean imitation. Everything is on the
surface. Everything is temporary
The Japanese, according to Senator
Iteveridge. are even more passionate in
their denunciation of the Russians.
"They cannot be trusted. They will
violate any compact when their selfish
interests dictate," was the expression
of a Japanese of good birth, good edu
cation and good condition. Another
said. "They are the spoilers of the
world," and so on.
.Moving m Lishtuousr.
The government is engaged in a novel
undertaking at Benton Harbor, Mich.,
say the Iudianaiolis News. The light
house in the harbor has been set on
rollers and is being moved about 1.0O0
feet in the lake. The work was oc
casioned by the extension of the main
pier l.ooo feet into I-ake Michigan, and
the lighthouse will Ik moved out to the
end of the pier, providing It does not
topple over and elide into the lake.
When in position it will lie pos:ble to

UNCLE SAM'S EXACTNESS.
t'oer tcet of Copper Wire That Made
a J.ot of Trouble.
"Xo. eir," said a rhiladelphlan who
supplies the government with necessi
ties of l!fe, "you can't do business with
Uncle Samuel in the spirit of a con
tract; you simply must obey its letter.
If you put in specifications amounting
to stcen dollars r.nd 21 cents and then
bill it goods under the contract and the
total amounts to the same stcen dol
lar and 19 cents you've got to take it
back and make up the other '2 cents, or
you don't do business.
"Let me give you an instance of Un
cle Samuel's character for exactness.
We were awarded a contract for 1.XK)
feet of .copper wire for League Island.
We sent the order to the manufactur
ers, and they turned in the stuff. In a
few days wo got a letter from the is
land authorities that that wire was
only ftS5 feet long.
"We answered that we knew it. that
the eopier ingot did not yield any more
and that we charged them only for
iS.j feet. Would that do? Not a bit
of it. '
"They sent us word that if that wire
whs not brought up to I.imk) feet the lot
would be rejected. Then we had to get
a permit from the I... A. to send a man
down to join on enough to make the
demand good, and he went dowu and
did the work.
"In a few days we were notified that
the piece he put on made the whole
length 1.004 feet. We w rote back that
wo didn't care for the four fettt and
Uncle Sam could have it.
"Next morning up conies an order to
cut off that four feet or the whole
bunch would be rejected. Then we j
had to get another permit for our man '

should say not. When he threw the of

Modern Method of Tool Itcpnlrinpr.
Kvcry engineer is now familiar with
the fact that in all modern works of
any size the making and repairing of
tools is managed by a special depart
ment of tin1 works.- The "good old
days" when n gang of men would stand
in line waiting for their turn at the
grindstone have gone by. In a modern
shop w'l-.en a tool needs grinding it is
sent to the tool department, and anoth
er one, all ready for use, is obtained at
It is easy to see how much more eco
nomical such n method is, for the prep
aration of tools is kept in the hands of
people who are doing nothing else and
who an? necessarily much more expert
than the general workman would be,
while the hitter does not waste time in
waiting for a turn at the grindstone.
Consumption of earth as food is said
to be common not only in China, New
Caledonia and New t'uinea. put in the
Malay archipelago as well. -The testi
mony of many travelers in the orient
is that the yellow races are especially
addicted to the practice. In Java and
Sumatra the clay used undergoes a pre
liminary preparation, being mixed with
water, reduced to a paste and the sand
nnd other hard substances removed.
The clay is then formed into small
cakes or tablets about as thick as a
lead pencil and baked in an iron sauce
pan. When the tablet emerges from
this process it resembles a piece of
dried pork. The Javanese frequently
eat small figures roughly modeled from
clay which resemble animals or little
men turned out in pastry shops.
The First Railway Trip.
The first locomotive was built by
Ceorge Stephenson for the Stockton
and Darlington railway. The first rail
way journey took place Sept. 27, 18".",
and it is on record that the lire was so

motive Iwcame nearly red hot; but,
though the engine was most boisterous
ly skittish, the journey was safely ac

son himself. The train consisted of six
loaded wagons, a passenger carriage,
twenty-one trucks fitted with seats and
six wagons filled with coals. The num
ber of passengers was 45o. On the re
turn journey they increased to over ic0,
many of them "hanging to the wagons

"Can a woman be happy on r0 cents
This question stalked into the reci
procity meeting of the Englewood (III.)
Woman's club the other day and put
harmony to flight, says the Chicago
The club was discussing "The Work
ing Woman; How Can We Help Her?"
at the time. Mrs. Coonlcy Ward made
a plea for the simpler life, and Mrs.
Corinne Brown in answering her
brought up the To cents a day topic.
"If the leisure classes would share
the burden of work and live more sim
ply," declared Mrs. Ward, "the condi
tions of the working people would be
greatly bettered. The extravagance in
overdres by the leisure class is what
causes a great deal of the misery in the
working class. The poorer try to imi
tate those who dress extravagantly,
and this effort to imitate eats away
their wages. If women would not be
so prodigal in dress the working wo
men would be better off."
Mrs. Brown and Dr. De Bey took is
sue with Mrs. Ward and wanted to
know if she could live on 50 cents a
day and be happy.
"I could live on 50 cents a day and
possibly be happy in the tropics," de
clared Mrs. Ward, "where the demands
of fashion are not so great."
"I could not live on 50 cents a day
and would not." declared Mrs. Brown.
"If anybody told me I'd have to there'd
be 'something doing.'" Mrs. Brown
said the working woman could best be
helped by being given better wages,
taught independence and the value of
organization. She said it was the duty
of all women to stick by the working
woman in her light for higher wages.
"Higher wages is the chief ingredient
of happiness. Money Is the surest path
to happiness." said she.
"A woman can lie happy on 50 cents
a day if she has eoiih ntment of mind
and sweetness of spirit." declared Mrs.
I.e C i rand Look wood. "Education
should simplify and sweeten our lives.
It should give us enjoyment of what
we have, no matter how little it is,
and not make us miserable."
Mrs. Lockwood urged that the best
way lo help the working woman was
to teach her contentment, to be happy
with her lot.
Mrs. Charles M. Ilenrotin declared
that the best way to help her is to give
her greater opportunities.
Tirst," said Mrs. Ilenrotin, ''both
the working woman and the woman of
leisure should, above all else, keep in
touch with their generation and its
activities -they should develop intel
"Secondly, give to the working wo
man opportunities and she will take
care of herself. It is within the prov
ince of the women's clubs to see that
greater opportunities are given to work
ing women. To the women of leisure
I would say: 'Develop your understand
ing of the daily lives of those around
you, those who are the great mass of
humanity. Listen to the heartbeats of
the working woman and be in sympa
thy with her efforts.' "
Mrs. Ilenrotin read statistics to show
that working women receive far less
wages for the same amount of work
than men. She cited figures in four in
dustries which together employ 10,000
more women than men and which pay
J.'JO.OOO.OOO less in wages to the women
BIRD DOG'S NEW 'POINT."
Intelligent Canine Sniffs Ont Terra
pin For Master.
Hillie Donelson of Lower Allowny
Creek. In New Jersey, has a bird dog
which he values at high figures because
it "points" terrapin, says a Salem dis
patch. Donelson is something of a
trapper, and on one of his trips recent
ly he ran across a terrapin of good size,
lie gave the turtle a wash and let his
dog snifT it for a minute. Later on the
intelligent beast stood at a hole in the
ground as if to saj- to his master: "Bet
ter look here. There's something do
ing." Donelson was for ignoring the dog,
but thought better of it. Upon examin
ing the. hole he pulled out a line large
terrapin. A few hours later in the
day the animal repeated the perform
ance with gratifying results, and his
master considers him the only turtle
hunter in the state.
A Xevr Practice Cartridge.
A new cartridge for target practice
by marines, especially for ranges of
about twenty-five yards, has been de
vised. The bullet will weigh seventy
eight grains and will le .31 inches in
diameter, or a diameter .002 inches
greater than the Imre of the rifle. Three
grains of smokeless powder will be
used, and with the experiments which
have been made excellent results have
beeu attained at twenty-five yards.
