It Pays to Advertise In the Rising Don VOLUME X. THE DOMESTIC SCIENCE OF GAR RISON SCHOOL. Principal R. T. Coles, of the Gar rison School, was asked by our re porter the other day as to the bene fit the girls are receiving from the Domestic Science Department of the school. He said, "I am well satis fied with results thus far. That Is one of my favorite departments of the school and I pay a great deal of attention to it. At present we have about eighty-five girls taking a course In cooking und practical house-keeping. Miss Robinson, the efficient teacher of that department, is thor oughly competent and much Interest ed lii the work. It will puy any one to visit her clusBes and notice the interest the girls take in the train ing. For example the following is a part gf the first year's course: two lectures a week on care of kitchen and kitchen utensils, sweeping, dust ing, care of brooms, brushes and dusters ; scrubing floors, window cleaning, silver polishing, cure of din ing room, bed room ventilation, and care of kerosene lamps. The first year's course In cooking, consists of the following, cooking of simple breakfast dishes, bread making, table laying and waiting breakfasts. This training has already begun to make Itself felt in the home, For In con versation with many mothers, of these girls, who by force of circum stances are compelled to spend a great deal of time away from home, have turned the house over entirely to the girl and have noticed the dif ference in interest the girl manifests now to whut she did before having had the training. A few weeks ago one of the Fifth Grade girls, without a mother, wus ill and the teacher, with a few of the girl's clusmutes visited her home, took charge of the room, put to use their knowledge of housekeeping and ventilation and prepared dainty foods such as cream of tomato soup and dropped eggs on toast. This practi cal training Is the kind all our girls need and will do much to revolution i.e our homes. The only regret I have is that the work In my school cannot be more extended." LINCOLN INSTITUTE NOTES. The enrollment of students In Lin coin Institute has Increased steadily will each year of President Allen's administration. To dute is Is three hundred and ninety-eight and both faculty and students are eagerly watching the arrival of the four nun dredth student. The summer school Is yet to be heard from and undoubtedly the en rollment for the year will not be far short of five hundred. Arrangements have been made for midwinter clusses, as Is now the cub torn In leading schools and colleges, and those who find it impossible to enter until this season of the year need not In any sense feel that it is time lost. To many teachers with short school terms, such an arrange' ment of classes will prove a great blessing; and several who find the summer term too short a time In which to bring themselves up in all of the studies they desire to take are availing themselves of the excellent opportunities here afforded them for more extensive work during the mid winter and spring terms.

Allen Morris, has ruther pe culiur records in love affairs. Al though a twice married man, he ar dently woes two of Detroit's blushing maidens at one and the same time. About a year ago a correspondent In the Informer told In glowing terms about the splendid Christian work a stranger, by the namo of B. Allen Morris, was doing among the chil dren of his neighborhood and about organizing them into a club and train ing them in the noble work of the Afaster. Mr. Morris was to all outward ap pearances, a gentleman of great piety and high Christian character. No one could blame the pretty maidens of Bethel church for saying that Brother Morris looked good to them, and when two of Bethel's female members seemed to be the elect of the polished gentlman, they were looked upon with envy. It was said that Brother Mor ris had become engaged to both of the fair young ladles, and indeed, was about to be married to one of them when a letter was received in this city from Kansas City, Mo., that reads In part as follows: Kansas City, Mo., Nov. 24, 1905. Dear Sir: I am inquiring for my husband. He Is quite a church work er among the young people. His name Is Burt Allen Morris. We were married here in Kansas City the 29th day of June, 1903. We moved to Chi cago. After a month he deserted me; then after a time he came back to Kansas City; then he deserted me here and went back to Detroit. Now 1 hear he is married to some woman In Detroit. He hasn't got any divorce from me. I am still his wife. He was a Mason and belonged to the Westport Lodge here, but he is sus pended now. Will you kindly inform me as to this woman, her name and address. I cannot understand my hus band's treatment of me. The startling nature of the contents of this letter started an investigation that has resulted in uncovering a rather checkered career on the part of Morris, who only last fall matricu lated In Wllberforce University, In tending to enter the ministry. Mr. Morris is alleged to have been married In Chicago November 1, 1899, by Rev. J. F. Thomas, and again June 29th, 1904, In Kansas City, Mo by Rev. F. J. Peck.

She did not mean to do It, and it did not hurt the duck much; but the duck said, "I'll pay you for that!" So the duck flew at the old hen, but as she did so her wings struck an old goose, who stood close by. "I'll pay ou for that!" cried tho goose, and she flew at the duck; but as she did so her foot tore the fur of n cat who was Just then in the yard. "I'M pay you for Unit!" cried the cut, and she started for the goose; lull us she did so tier claw caught iu. the wool of a sheep.
