The first term of the scholastic year, l!i"u-i'i, has thus far (three weeks) proved u record breaker. The enrollment to date, October Vth. Is three hundred and thirty-one, nnd every day adds to the rapidly Increas ing; number. Already it is necessary to divide classes because of their sl.o and soon it will be necessary to mako sub-divisions. Students are here from the I'liclflc Coast on the West llulf of Mexico on the South, and the Creat Lakes on the North. The College Department has enrolled a larger number than usual and all of the industries lire over crowded. Summer school students are sending in letters from various points, telling; how much was gained in methods of leaching and subject, matters; that, they have been able to secure better positions with higher salaries bocuusn of the work accomplished during; I lie seven weeks' course in Lincoln In stitute. Craduiites of the Institution are constantly in demand to fill excellent positions both within and without tho slate; and President. Allen, who takes great pleasure tu looking after their welfare, and who Is always hunting them up, has been able to secure good positions for nearly or quite all of the graduates of the hist three years, who have desired to teach.

It Is supported by Hie slat" and does not have the ap peal lo the cliai'italilv inclined for sup pott. There Is no good reason for exploit ing its merits. Tho many students from oilier slates seek admission now." It Did. "This watch will work like a charm," said the dealer. "Ami It will cost you but a dollar." Ue paid the dollar. By the way; did you ever see a cliiinn that kept time'.' The dealer was correct, nnd we have no complaint to make. The watch worked like a charm -exactly like a charm. "Papa." he said one day, "sailors must bi awful small men." "Why do you think so?" asked his father. "Because," answered Harry, "I read In Hie patters about one who went to sleep on his watch."
