William Cook, oce of the pioneer set

home near Hampton at 8 o'clock this
morning, aged 78 years. He was born in
Connecticut. June 18, 1813. and in 1824
came with his parents to Illinois, settling
in Wayne county, where they remained
for 10 years, when they removed to
Hampton township, where, in 1833, he
was united in marriage io Miss Livy
Turner. Mrs. Cook died in 1871
and in 1870 he was married to Mrs. Mary

WOMEN AT AN ENGLISH COLLEGE.
What a Girl Hi Supposed to Do in Cam-
brIJgo laivernity to Stand Well.
It appears difficult for an outsider to
realize the conditions of student life at
Xewnham or Girtou college; souie seem to
imagine that the student lias absolute free
dom; others, on the contrary, that college
life is a second edition of school life that
a student must not go out without leave;
that she has certaiu tasks to prepare, and
that there is some one to see that fche pre
pares them. Hie reality is neither the one
thing nor the other. Certainly the students
are allowed a great deal of liberty, but
there are rules which have to be observed.
The following are the few restrictions
imposed upon them: In the summer terms
the doors are closed at 8 p. ni.; in the win
ter terms at 6 p. m.; if students wish to go
out after this hour they have to give in their
names, and they are then expected to be in
by 11 p. m., unless under very special cir
cumstances, when they may perhaps re
ceive permission to stay till later. Students
are expected uot to absent themselves from
Out of lecture hours the students are
free to go where they will, but if they boat
or ride they must provide themselves with
a chaperon. In the spring aud summer
terms the students enjoy a good deal of
boating. It is not unusual for them to
make up a party and row down the river
to some little inn or cottage where they
have tea before returning. '
At first women students used to work
for the Cambridge higher local examina
tions, and sometimes to enter informally
for the final examinations of the univeri
ty; but in 1SS1 the senate of the University
of Cambridge agreed to admit women for
mally to their honor examinations, so t hat
now the majority read for au honor or
tripos examination that is, for the same
examination as the men. They attend the
same lectures, and work under exactly the
same conditions, the only difference being
that whereas the men have a degree con
ferred on them, which entitles them to use
the letters 11. A., the women have to con
tent themselves with a certificate which
states the class obtained, but does not con
fer any title on the owner. The woman
graduate has no hood, nor does she wear
any distinctive dress as an undergraduate.
It is not compulsory to work for the tripos
examinations. Some still work for the
higher local examinations, though they
are then expected to stay at college for a
couple of years only. Students are per-
mitted to work with no examinations iu
view, but in this case they are only allowed
to be in residence so long as the authorities
are satisfied that they aredoing good work.
Three years is the usual time alloted for
preparing fora tripos examinat iou, though
some may be taken after a residence of two
years. If a student fails to keep the stated
number of terms the examiuation cannot
That women are able to make good nse
of these privileges is amply proved by the
results of the examinations. Even iu
classics and mathematics, subjects in
which they are usually handicapped by
not having enjoyed the same training as
the men before goii.g up to college, they
have taken extremely good places from
time to time; aud in those subjects in
which they start fair they have always
come well to the fore.
Among the women who have done re
markably well are Miss Scott, of Girton,
who was eighth wrangler, aud who is now
professor of mathematics at Uryn-Mawr
college, near Philadelphia; Aliss Chamber
Jain (Newubam), who was senior of the
modern languages tripos, 1SSC, and is now
also teaching at Bryn-Mawr college; Miss
Moberly aud Mis Hughes (Xewuham),
whowere seniors of the moral sciences
tripos in the years 1SS1 and 1S84, respective
ly; Miss Kolleston (Xewuham), history
tripos, bracketed senior, 18S6; Miss Ramsay
(Girton), senior of the classical tripos, 1867,
and lately Miss Philippa Fawcett (Xewu
ham), who in 1890 held the anomalous po
sition of beiiig"above the senior wrangler."
Each student has her own room or rooms.
The college supplies these with all neces
sary furniture; the decorations are left to
the taste and ingenuity of tne student, and
in most cases they are made to look very
charming. If the student has only one
room, her bed is made in the daytime to
resemble an ' ordinary couch. Eleanor

Considered Music a drawback.
I have known some excellent people who
contended tiiat music was a dangerous
art, and even so intelligent a. man as the
iate Dr. J. G. Holland, the editor of The
Century, contended that skill in piano
playing or violin playiug was rather a
drawback to a 3oung uiau than otherwise.
