Only For Their Pains.
The sophomores of Augustana., col
lege are laughing in their sleeves to
day ove.r a huge joke which they as
sert they played last night at the ex
pense of the freshmen. According to
the sophomores, they succeeded in get-
ling- uui me wnoie iresnmen ciass on
a wild goose chase which lasted from
0 o'clock until after 8 o'clock.
' The cause for the disturbed state
of mind of the freshies was due to a
rumor that spread that the sophs wei?
to have their banquet last night. The
report was started by an excited
freshie who tried to secure entrance
Into the room of a sophomore who
"was dressing, and was denied admis
sion by the latter. The freshman im
mediately smelled a banquet in the
air ana communicated his suspicions
quickly to his classmates.
. . Immediately the whole class turned
"out and scouts were sent scurrying
. around the boulevard to ascertain the
movements of the sophs. The latter
when they became aware of the de
lusion the freshies were laboring un
der, did all they could to lead on the
under classmen. For fully two hours
the distracted freshies shadowed and
chased after . lonely sophs who scur
ried around the neighborhood of th
college in an effort to entice the
freshies to capture them. The fresh
men, however, profited by the terrible j
mistake made by the freshies last
year, and warily kept their hands otf
the mischievous sophs. i

At 8 o'clock the freshies gathered
for c. consultation in the room of one
of . the classmen. They had scarcely
assembled when their discomfiture
was increased by the appearance in
their midst of P. A. Johnson, whom
the sophs allege is their president.
At first they were inclined to regard
ihis as a further nwe of the sophs to
thwart suspicion of their banquet de-
signs, but as Johnsoon seemed in no
hurry to go the freshies finally came
to the conclusion that they had been
the victims of circumstances and
called off the chase.

Alton, 111., Oct. 28. Funerals at
night . are the newest idea in Alton.
Thirty members of the Ministerial al
liance in session here unanimously en
dorsed the idea as advanced by Rev.
F. S. Eitelgeorge, pastor of the Henry
street German Methodist church, i
"li would be much better to have
funerals at night." he said, "and there
should be no Sunday funerals, either
day or night. Funerals nowadays are
too extravagant. Too much money is
spent for flowers, and carriages, and
there is entirely too much display.
From an extremely 'solemn function
the funeral has developed into an oc
casiDn for vulgar show."
Reform In SeraionM.
Mr. Eitelgeorge also' said there
should be a radical reform in funeral
sermons. He thinks there is too much

preach a gospel sermon," he said. "I
