SENATOR STANFOL o 1-c.T PROJECT.
California Cniveritj Will Receive
the Balk of His 1'ortnne.
Senator Stanford's life ii terest has set
tie in the university at, Palo Alto, Cal.,
whtch he built to the mem iry of his only
son. It Lick observatory has become fa
mous for possessing the most powerful
telescope in the world, j'he Californian
expressed satisfaction at tlio scientific dis
closures which had been n ade possible by
such an instrument.
"Don't you think, sen itor?" he was
asked, "that in return for your expendi
tures a proper compliment would be paid
in naming Professor Barnard's moon of
Jupiter after you!"
"No; that moon is too far off to be as
everyday practical as I like to be. I should
much prefer to be remembered by my fel
low wnen as one who spt nt his wealth
wisely for the benefit of ot lers, and set an
example that other men of means may be
induced to follow it."
To the support of this uiiiversity all the
Stanford millions will eventually go.
"The demands keep apace with the
work," he said, "but I ar l glad of it. It
gives me n chance to carry out those plans
with the success of which 1 desire that my
name and life work shall be best known.
.."I have been impressed wtyh the fact

"It is to overcome that condition, to giva

"Many people regard newspapers ns
property of other people a good leal as they
look upon umbrellas," said a woman re
cently. "That they should be looked after
and returned to their owners dies not seem
to lie necessary or even permit sible. One
summer at a boarding house it the moun
tains I received by mail from a friend a
foreign newspaper, with the request tbat
I return it when read. Before doing so I
handed it to a fellow boarder a man us
something of general interest. He did not
return it, and after some hesitation the
day lief ore I left I asked for it. 'Oh,' he
replied carelessly, 'did you exect me to
return the paper? I suppose .thas been
thrown away. I can look for it, but I don't
suppose it has been kept.'
"We were standing near the door of his
room at the moment, but he di I not offer
to look for it there, and I was obliged to
content myself with the requ-st that he
would do so at his conveniwice. He never
alluded to the matter again, however, and
I left the next day. I apologized to my
friend, and sent abrond for ano: her paper,
which came in dne time. It ts as careless
of me perhaps not to have requested the
return of the paper at the t i n e I offered
it; still, a foreign paper with a marked
article, I think, carried on its face a recog
nizable value which, if disregarded, de
manded an apology for the negl set." Her
