New York Star: That t e election of

subject for patriotic congratulation, not

states. His long legislative experience
and comnrfbeostve knowledge of parlia

able even with respect to senatorial pro

cogent, eloquence will spread a power

There is no sufficient ground for the opin

At a recent meeting cf a number of col
lege men in Hartford conversation hap
pened to drift to the trials and struggles
of examination days. It was led that way
by tbe first story teller who said that, hav
ing been at one examination where each
student drew a separate slip of q nest ion,
he met a classmate who bad to go in with
the next division. "Tbe thing u ret likely
to be a chance," be said to his friend, ' but
in case you should draw the paper I bad,
I'll tell you What each question was." So
he did. Tbe fellow looked them tip, went
in and drew that very paper, aud came oat
But that proved a very mild case when
tbe others came up. It seems that in one
examination at Yale some years ago in
Latin, one fellow, who was very thaky,
put his own inter! ined textbook into his
overcoat pocket, and entered the room. He
was called to the desk, and the tutor
gave him a text book, of course not inter
lined. He shoved it into his other pocket,
walked slowly back to bis sect, drew oot
his own book from his pocket, and was all
prepared. After reciting, before the tutor
could call for the book, he absent mindedly
thrust it back into his pocket, and turned
away. Being asked for the book he apolo
gized, hacled out the other one, and re
tired. Once in alumni hall at Yale a shaky stu
dent who couldn't bear to part with his
class discovered in advance a knothole in
the floor. He secured the desk by that
hole. Pretty soon he bad tbe misfortune
to drop his pencil. Bending over for it he
shoved bis examination rwirvr :lowr
through tbe knothole. Fellows in waiting
in the cellar ran off with it, filled out pa
pers for him, not too well, but well enough
to save him, for a perfectly correct exam
ination wr.s not consistent with Lis record,
and on returning signaled to him. This
time be had the misfortnne to knock a lot
of paper off his table and litter the floor.
He got down and conscientiously picked
everything up, including the relief papers
that came up through the knothole.
At another time where papers were
drawn ona fellow drew two by sleight of
hand process, passed on one, surrendered
it and went out. Then be gave the extra
one to a lime friend, who at once '"cram

Another fellow, illustrating n'lbi. iho

the professor, bn ring practically no knowl

study for the term, went to the record
and learned by heart the answers to each
of the t.v;lve questions askel in ta.li of
the previous years, discovering the while
that, instead of being thirty : ix questions,
there was a good deal of repetition. Know

Burr Mcintosh, the actor and quondam
newpaper man, relates a funny anecdote.
"About a year ago our company was de
layed several hours at a little way station
in Alabama near Birmingham. Several of
the party, including one of the ladies, sug
gested a quiet game of 'hearts' to pass
away the time. There were absolutely no
signs of civilization about the place except
ing an old cow and a pig grazing quietlv
near by, but we hadu't been plr.ying five
minutes when a big, burly fellow came
along swinging a club and pt.mpouslv
uaid, 'You are all under arrest:' We
thought lie was joking, and paid no atten
tion to bim until he repeated the remark,
when one of the party did consent to say
"But the deputy sheriff, or whatever be
was, wouldn't have it. lie arrested us ail,
even the lady, although v. l- protected that
the game was for fun and not money, and
took us before the 'mayor,' who fined us
$1 each and then tacked on costs enough to
make it .?!. I got even with the sheriff a
few days later on our return by throwing
a bottle of ink all over him our train
passed the station, but I never azain at
tempted to play 'beans' in Alabama."
