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

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
