Prof. Hiram Corson of Cornell li not only a great Shakespearean critic, but also a person who upon occasion knows how to meet an emergency with true Shakespearean elevation of soul It is told of him—and all good stories in that neighborhood are told of him— that he was once aroused from his nightly slumbers by his wife, who had become frightened at a thunderstorm ‘‘Wake up, Hiram,” she cried. The professor turned uneasily on his couch, but was sound asleep again in two seconds. A blinding flash, fol lowed almost instantaneously by a ter rifle peal of thunder, caused his terri fied spouse to again cry: "Wake up; oh, do wake up, Hiram!” No response came beyond an inarticulate gurgle from the professor, succeeded prompt ly by the regular breathing of dee* sleep. Another flash more vivid than its predecessor lit up the room, while the wind, tearing some bricks from the chimney, brought them rattling and banging down upon the roof, accom panied by the sharp detonation of he thunder. "Hiram, wake up; the last groat day has come!” shrieked Mrs. Corson "Wha-aa-t, in the night?” queried the professor.—New York Times, NO MORE RAILROAD COLLISIONS System in New Zealand Most Perfect Safety Device. Railway managers in New Zealand believe that they have succeeded In Ending a new method of signaling that will make collisions absolutely Impossible. It has recently been pul into operation there. The block system of signaling has been in general use in New Zealand hitherto; but the new system, called the "tablet," has now been introduced Its essential feature Is that no engine driver Is allowed to leave a station without a tablet In his possession, and the clement of safety rests on the fact that the machines are so made tnal It Is impossible for two of the tabicls to be out at the same time. If a driver leaves Auckland for Newmarket with a tablet, that tablet has to be deposited In the machine at Newmarket before another tablet is Issued for Auckland, and the elec trlcal connection between the two nations makes It impossible to ex iract a tablet from the Auckland ma Phone Main 4956 We P a y for the return of a!l our marker! bottles.

An Oxford Epigrammatist. The grave has lately closed over the Rev. R. Bartlett, who was formerly aid by bln friend* to be the most popular man In Oxford, and who wan certainly noth genial and witty. The most original of his Failles was a uklt }n the condign punishment of an un lergradnate who, after drinking toe freely, hud knocked down the college porter— Wh, was hi* time, already short, Cut pifmaturely shorter'’ Because at flist h» fiuor»d ’no port. And th« n he flouted the porter. Professor Contagion said that It war Bartlett who Invented the word "equarson"—that now famous equlva i«nt for what In Suffolk la called a ‘black squire." The manufacture ol this "portmanteau-word," as Lewis Carroll would have termed It, Is com monly a.-erlbed to Bishop Samuel WU herforr-e. The Bishop Is reported to have pla;. fully styled himself a "squls hop. and this may have led to the conjecture that "squarson” was also Invented by him. I.ondon Spectator Wickedness in Luverne.
