HALF STARVED STUDENTS.
Enthusiastic Sorkrrs After Knonlrdg:
Who Are Often Nearly FamiKhed.
It seems difficult to believe that there is
actual suffering for want of food among
the stulents in this city, but instances of
pt iv.ition are not so uncommon its might
be supposed. The young men and women
who are willing to go unfed for twenty
four hours rather than give up studying
arc generally high spirited, and would re-t-i-nr
uTers of assistance rs insults. They
leep their sufferings to themselves and
slave a fiy at their work with that grim
tieterinin.it ion of despair. Occasionally
the trutii comes out and then kind friends
iu a delicate way supply the much needed
When students whose finances are in a
better shape by some chance learn that
the young man or woman has beeu living
on half rations for weeks, they invite the
unfortunate one to dinner or to spend the
night with them. That is about the only
way in which to approach the sensitive
person without giving offense.
A student at one of the theological sem
inaries here recently invited a classmate to
his home for dinner. The guest hardly
looked robust and well fed, but his friend
never once suspected that he was half
starved. When he sat down at the gener
ous board the poverty stricken young man
intended to eat sparingly, lest his secret
should be revealed. The temptation
proved too great, however, for nature
would make herself felt.
The poor fellow ate and ate until his
host and hostess could not help noticing
his ravenous appetite. They realized the
truth and insisted that there was no occa
sion for his apologies. Pressing invitations
to dinner came to him frequently from that
family after that.
A young woman who is a pupil at the
Art Students' league had a similar experi
ence with two of hex fellow students,
whom she invited to spend Saturday night
and Sunday at her home in the annexed
district. The two had no false modesty
about their straightened finances. "Isn't
this jolly?" they said at dinner. "You
must really pardon lis for eating so heart
ily, but we can't help paying up old scores
and laying in a supply for tbe future."
The pursuit of knowledge is marked
nowadays by some of the same privations
by w hich it was in t he early d:iys of Ox
ford. New York Tribune.
A Stout IValeotrian.
Cne morning, in Glenorchy, Professor
Wilson ("ChriMoiier North'") started out
early to fish iu Loch Toila. Ita nearest
point was thirteen miles from his lodging.
On reaching it, and unscrewing the butt
end of his fishing rod to get tbe top he
found he had forgotten it. Nothing daunt
ed, he walked buck, break .Tasted, made hi.
rod complete and walked again to Loch
Toila. All the long summer day he fished,
and after sunset started for home with a
full bai-ket. Feeling somewhat fatigued,
and passing a familiar farmhouse, be
stopped to ask for food.
It was near midnight, and he routed the
family from bed. The mistress brought
him a full bottle of whisky and a can of
milk. lie poured half the whisky into
half the milk and drunk it oS at a draft.
While his hostess was still staring in
amazement he poured the remaining milk
and whisky together and finished the mix
ture. He then proceeded homeward, hav
ing performtd a journey ofvover fifty -two

All In a Name.
A certain business man in tliis city has
good reasou to believe that there is 'some
thin;; in a name." For many years he eu
jraged in business pursuits here under the
name derived from his father. The name
was an honest one, but not particularly
euphonious, and its bearer found, after
much energetic toil in several fields of in
dustry, that it was barren of talismanic in
fluence in business. Although a man of
fine presence, good manners, industrious
habits uml personal honesty, this gentle
man was unal.le to win success. He tried
venture after venture, with fair prospects
in each rase at the outset , but failure came
with disheartening promptness. II is pecu
liar name on u business card or appended
to a letter never seemed tohaveany weight
in business tircles.
After a great many vicissitudes he re
luctantly came to the conclusion that it
was his nam? which brought him bad
luck, lie resolved to try the effect of a
change, and with the permission of the
legislature lie simply reversed his name.
For the sake of illustration, supposing it
was Aliel Smith, he obtained the letral
right to change it to Smith Abel. The
effect of the change was magical. The
hitherto elusive success wooed the new
name assiduously. Enterprises that had
fallen flat before became popular and pros
perous. Old debts were speedily paid and
a new bank account grew to very healthy
proportions. The gentleman grew rich
steadily, nnd his name is now on the list of
the solid men of New York. New York
TcnnvMiQ and Sightseer.
Though Farringford, in Freshwater, was
Tennyson's favorite home, Aldworth, in
Haslemere, Ik came by force of circum
stances his summer residence circum
stances meaning in this case tourists and
Saturday to Monday cheap trippers. Ten
nyson used to say that he was literally
driven from the Isle of Wight by the sum
mer visitors. Not content with invading
the demesne of Farringford, these enthusi
astic but not considerate sightseers would
dog the steps of the object of their admira
tion whenever he took his walks abroad.
Twenty years ago he purchased tbe place
at Aldworth, and made it his summer re
treat. The house was designed by James
Knowles, who, besides acquiring celebrity
as the editor of The Ninteenth Century Re
view, is a professional architect.
Every year in May, since 18T2, Tennyson
has gone to Aldworth, returning to Fresh
water in October, when the trippers cease
from troubling and the 'Arry is at rest.
Tennyson had acquired an aversion to
summer holiday mortals that was almost
morbid in its intensity. Perhaps this grew
by what it f-'l on, perhaps a part of it a
small part of it was affectation, for Ten
nyson was a hero worshiper, and. as far as
himself was concerned, was not indifferent
to the world's applause. Cor. Boston
Developing- m Child's Inner Life.
In one of Mrs. Beebe's lectures to moth
ers 6he said, "The only way that a faith
ful, pure and holy life can be made an ab

of will and intelligence within the child,
rather than by merely eurrcunding him
with the same."
