JOKE ON DR. GATES.
His Lecture on Attending Chapel Was

Dr. Geo. A. Gates, the prospective

genial man who makes friends quickly,
especially among young people. He was
In Treasurer Jas. F. Griffin's office last
evening when a boy came in and want
ed to pay the tuition fee to Mr. Griffin.
Mr. Gates spoke pleasantly to the
boy, chatted a little, and asked if he
had been at chapel that morning when
he gave his talk. The boy said "No
I" when Mr. Gates interrupted hirri
with, T hat, not at chapel. Why every
Student should attend chapel," and the
college president went on with a short
lecture on the many things of profit to
fee gained by a regular attendance at
chapel. Then the boy got a chance to
say. -Why, I don't attend Washburn "
But you said you wanted to jay your
tuition." said the bewildered president
Yes. but I came to pay some one else's
tuition. Then the doctor laughed at
his mistake, and hoped the voung man
m-ould "enter college soon and then at
tend chapel faithfully." The boy said
afterwards that he was glad to take the
mild scolding for the supposed breach
of rules when it gave him a chance to

Scholars Write Letters to London
derry Pupils.
John MacDonald, of the Western
School Journal, has. forwarded a. bunch
of letters to the pupils of a school in
Londonderry, Ireland, from the pupils
of all the grades of the Junction City
schools.
The letters were sent to Mr. Mac-
Donald by Prof. William Heusner, prin
cipal of the Junction City schools. There
are several dozen in all, and they tell
of the fort, the surrounding country,
and the city and railroads, and other
wings or interest locally.
"They are very well prepared." said
Mr. MacDonald, "and show evidence of
much care and pains. There were some
mistakes and inaccuracies in the let
ters, however, showing that the letters
were wholly the work of the scholars
and were not doctored by the teachers.
That is well, for there is nothing like
these exercises to stimulate a desire on
the part of the scholars to write a nice
letter and have it correct."

"To that noble woman whose name 13
on every tongue, who gave the associa
tion hall in Brooklyn, too much praise
can not be paid."
