JUDGE UANEY TALK4 ISACK. Judge Haney, of South Dakota, in a recent lecture at Mitchell, made an able defense of the-divorce laws of his state. "The law is good enough," he said. "It is married men and married women who need improving. So long as some con tinue to conduct themselves more like animals than intelligent beings innocont parties will deserve deliverance from the resulting misery. When the rare and ineffable radiauce of the millennial morn shall have touched the hill tops of earth with undying glory; when human ity shall have ceased to be human- then and not till then will the necessity for divorce be removed. In the meantime no one is required to put the law in operation. If you are free from fault, your companion cannot secure a legal separation. If the marriage has become intolerable, you may obtain a legal re lease without disregarding any religious vow. You need not marry again. If you look upon the union as eternal; upon marriage vows as irrevocable, the law cannot possibly shatter such de lusion. If you believe in a spiritual blending of soul with soul, the deathless devotion of your faith can never be die-. turbed by courts and juries." Judge Haney's remarks were called forth by criticisms made by the eastern press on the divorce laws of South Dakota. It is noticeable that whatever the faults of the law it is the eastern people who take advantage of them mostly. In view of this fact the remarks of Judge Haney are significant. CROSS-CUITS.

The Inte Colonel Donn Piatt, lawyer, diplomat, soldier, journalist and author. used to tell some very amusing stories. One was about a certain bearer of dispatches when he, as secretary of our legation at Paris during Pierce's administration, was acting as charge d'offaires in the absence of the minister, John Y. Mason, of Virginia. I his hearer of dispatches was an old follow who rejoiced in the name of Mulberry Perkins, and hailed from Cincinnati, Donn'a native town. Perkins, who spoke only his native tongue, wanted to make the tour of Europe, and proposed to hire a courier at Paris to go with him as guide and interpreter. Donn dissuaded hlun from thie, annsring him that wealthy travelers no longer employed couriers. Instead, Donn accredited hmn as bearer of dispatches to all the courts of luropi under the name amnd title of Gen. Mulberry Perkins. He then in structed hir to buy a sword and strap it to his trunk, and told hits if he nout into dii culty to exhibit his passport, and if that didn't relieve him to draw his iword and slash away. The old fellow did as Piatt told him. Home monthe after this John Van Buren, who had tei ' traveling on the continent with his father, tir rex-presideit, appeared in Paris. Hitting in tlelI-gation one day he snddenly brok;e out with: "I see, Platt, who is (iou. Mulherry ! Pirkins? I can't find any such natie in the army register." "Of course nut," said hiatt, "'Ie's a general stenmiboat agent. Why?" "Well," rea uinded John fair Iluren, "he's ai queer old customier. The first dtiy I lver saw hin father arid I were 5tayin:! at a lotel in Switzerland, when a diligence drive up and ant old fsllow got ont, and, cobnin. round on the sidewalk, sung out to f thi suard on toi: ".Donor--. miIot liny can ct sack!'

" 'Yes, sI;,' replied th oled ntlemai 'Do you speak Fsencb?' "'Yest a little.' "'Well, come out here with me..' TwkAt you to get down toy carpet-teak.

"A successful candidate is not usually notified of his election until the Wednesday night on which he is taken oat," says William Dana Orcutt in the Marsh New England Magazine. 'Then those who, are already members of the society go to the student's room, fcrming a line from the top of the stairs to the street. The candidate is taken in whatever condition he may be found, often from bed, and is passed down the line with mord haste than gentleness. Then he is placed in the center of the body and the procession proceeds singing the "Institute Song" to the room of the second man on the "ten," who is taken out in a similar manner. When the ten men have been thus capturoed, they are taken in front of the Holyoke house, where lusty cheers are given for the new membiers. These men are then allowed to return to their rooms, the first five to begin "running" the next morning. From the time the student begins "running" to the time he receives his final initiation, he is not supposed to wash, shave or comb his hair. He wears the oldest flannel shirt he owns, no necktie, and has his trousers turned up at the bot tom. He is obliged to do whatever he is ordered by any member of the society, each "neophyte" being the special slave of two other members. The regulation re quirements, in addition to the more absurd ones, are to wake the members at some un earthly hour in the morning, and to sell newapapers and black shoes on the street. The candidate is required to ride a child's velocipede, decked out with feather plumes and a many-colored coat; to chase horse care, and then, placing his foot on the step, simply tie his shoestring, to the disgust of the conductor and the occupants of the car; to take his bed apartevery night, carry it out into the yard, and then put it up again; to go into the stores and violently berate the storekeepers; to rise during a play at the theater and object to the acting, only to be forcibly ejected from the house; to write ridiculous things about himself and send them to the papers for publica tion; to kiss every baby he meets; to raise his hat and smile at every one he passes; to act as valet, coachman, or footman to his tormentors." Harvard Club Life. "The club system at Harvard is entirely peculiar to itself," says William Dana Or cutt in the March New England Magazine. "In the smaller colleges it is rather the ex ception than the rule, that a man ,is not a member of some one of the many Greek letter societies which flourish. At Prince ton there are no societies. At Yale the so cieties are distinctly democratic. The election of members to the Skull and Bones, the Scroll and Key, and the Wolf's Head, depends largely on personal merit and pop ularity. Prominence in scholarship or in athletics makes a student almost certain of election to one of these three most famous Yale societies: end thus an added stimulus is given a min to distinguish himself. "At Harvard, however, the qualifications are different, family and money certainly being two distinctive qualifications for populatity. At Yale membership in the' sophomore societies counts for little in se curing a man a place in the senior organ izations. At Harvard, this sophomore membership i of the greatest importance; for when once a member of the Institute of 1770 Ithe senior society), the Hasty Pud ding club is in sight. As will be seen by the manner of electing men into the insti tute, it is personal friendship rather than general popularity which counts." A Chicago Boss in New York. M. C. McDonald, the Dick Croker, of Chicago, is in tL.e city selling his elevated road. For years "Mike" McDonald was the king gambler of the west. Now Michael Cascins McDonald is the democratic boss of Chicago, capitalist and newspaper pro prietor. He has more fun with the Chicago Globe than lie ever had before he became an "editor." "Why shouldn't I have a paper?" he reasoned. "'I ie newspapers pounded niofor years, and as I take a fall out of a man now it helps me to get even." Mr. McDonald went to the Arion ball with a newspaper mian and requested the latter to point out any of the New York editors if they chanced to be there. Presently the managing editor of one of the big dailies strolled l-ast McDonald's box. "See that man?" asked his companion. "The duck right in front?" "Yes. He is one of our editors." "Bring him in my box. I want to know all the literary blokes, now that I am one of them."-New York Recorder. A Ilnorster or acrligion. "Talmage to-day employs very nearly the same methods as those employed by Beecher; but one must not for a moment place him on the same plane," says Walter Blackburn darts in the March New England Maga zine. "In spite of his occasional sensa tionalism Beecher wes in earnest; he did not flinch from uttering his convictions, though pe-baps the opposition lie encoun tered in orthodox quarters imbued those convictions often with a militarntisii they could have dish eised with. Talmage is a mere poseur---a month. tie is a shepherd whose wea k in the Lord's vineyard, and the sensational Sunday papers, makes one won der whether the Lord is fully cognizamnt of his self-called servant.
