Senor Jose Velasques, riding and driving thirty-five horses at one time. How to Draw a Line On the Iceman ■ Chicago Tribune. It would not be so pleasant to be the ice man were all women like Mrs. Caroline A. Bley of the Oummings apartment build ing. Grand 1 boulevard and - Fifty-first street. Mrs. Bley has discovered a way to protect herself against short weight. "How much does a cubic foot of ice weigh, anyway?" she asked. The icemen -was taken off his guard. "About fifty-eight pounds,-' he replied. Then he went on to say that the weight. ran Cross fifty-six to. sixty pounds, but that fifty-eight pounds was a fair aver age. t,: '"-:'' ■' ■'•■ ■ - ■'--' ;r-?': i; Mrs, '■ Bley had learned enough. The next day she accused the iceman of having sold i her forty-three pounds of ice for fifty pounds, ia i i The man expostulated. "But you did," said Mrs. Bley. "I measured it." Weigh* Ice by Measurement. Then the woman produced a tape line and set about measuring the cake that the iceman was just taking from his wagon. There was a quick calculation in which a pencil and paper figured. "That piece weighs only forty-four pounds," she said. "Put it on the scales and see." The' ice -was -weighed and the woman was vindicated. The driver gasped.;.;• ■ Mrs. , Bley*s » system .was -, simple. . For Instance, a cubic foot of ice is 12 inches ■wide, 12 - inches in breadth, and 12 inches long.

A street display will take place dally at 10 a. m. Footlight Flashes. Ada Rohan will return to America late in Aug-ust. She is spending the summer on the Irish coast. Klaw & Erlanger have engaged Frank Wes ton to play Arrius and Ellen Mortimer Esther in "Ben Hur" next season. Thomas Brown, the whistler, has been en gaged by Frank McKee to play a part in sup port of Peter F. Dailey in Augustus Thomas' new comedy, "Champagne Charley." Thomas Evans, who made a hit as the sporting editor in "Miss Prinnt" last season, has been engaged by Klaw & Erlanger for their comedy company, appearing with Gua and Max Rogers in "The Rogers Brothers iv Washington." Mary Mannering and James K. Hackett are spending a month in the south of France. They will finish their vacation tour abroad with-a four weeks' yachting cruise through the Mediterranean. Mies Mannering will re turn to America the last week in August, and begins rehearsals Sept. 2 for her second tour in "Janice Meredith." Gus and Max Rogers have become extensive real estate owners in New York. The past week they purchased a $70,000 flathouse in the Harlem district. They now control realty val ued at more than $250,000. Under the man agement of Klaw & Erlanger these German character comedians have literally picked up moaei' in. "Wall Street" and "Central Park," I and developed into real men of affairs. Frank McKee's epecial company presenting "Janice Meredith" will be composed of artists of established reputations. The part of "Jan ice" will be played by Amy Ricard, who made a hit last season as Tabitha Drinker in Mary Mannering's support. Frank McKee has secured the rights to Ramsey Morris' new play, "Ninety and Nine." This play, which takes its title from Evange list Ira Sankey's celebrated hymn of the same name, treats of life in two small Indiana villages, and will employ a cast of thirty peo ple and a large number of supernumeraries. It will be one of the important productions of the coming season. Klaw & Erlanger will make an elaborate production of Harry B. Smith's new musical comedy, which will be called "The Liberty Belles." The initial presentation will occur at the Chestnut Street theater in Philadelphia, Sept. 9. Among the people already engaged are Cyril Scott, John Slavin, Etta Butler, the ' comedienne and mimic, and Sandol Milliken. Frank McKee will call the new comedy by Augustus Thomas, in which he will star Pe ter F. Dailey next season, "Champagne Char ley." This piece is written on more "legiti mate" lines than anything in which Mr. Dai ley has yet been seen. Mr. Dailey's part will be that of a young society man who becomes a wine agent, and incidentally the "angel" for a theatrical production. A N«w York critic says that "San Toy" was a success, and smashed the tradition that "to break a prosperous run and then return to the same theater the same season means disaster," because this delightful musical comedy is an excellent example of $2 worth of amusement. It is tuneful, entertaining in its story and was well acted and well sung. He considered the success of the piece, it is so really meritorious, scarcely worth talking about, but had it failed it would have de served an epitaph two columns long. Klaw & Erlanger have arranged with Jacob- Litt to present the Drury Lane fairy extrava ganza, "The Sleeping Beauty and the Beaßt," at the Broadway theater in New York for a run, beginning Monday, Nov. 4. Mr. Litt is now in London and the contract was complet ed by cable last Monday. This is one of the largest productions ever made at the Theater Royal, Drury lane, and will be staged in this country with all the original scenery. the number of pounds that the cake of Ice weighs. "My fifty-pound cake of We was short for many days,' 'said Mrs. Bley yesterday. "It weighed only about forty-one or forty two pounds. After I hit on my scheme I told the driver of the wagon, and he saw there was no use of his attempting to de ceive me. I get full weight now." Feel the Higher Prices. Meanwhile, consumers of ice are feel ing the full effects of the recent increase in the price of ice during the last few heated days. It has been found that with some of the ice companies, unless cash in advance is paid for the coupon books, the small consumer is forced to pay 50 cents a hundred pounds for his supply. Many complaints are heard from the small con sumers, who are compelled to pay fully twice as much for their small pieces of ice as the saloonkeeper and restaurant keeper. Complaints are also made by the officials of some of the ice companies that some of the drivers are collecting more for their ice than they are authorized to do. "We would consider it a favor," said President J. S. Field of the Knicker bocker company, "if aiy o f our customers who think they are being overcharged would report the matter to us. We have already had a number of complaints." Does your building require a new roof? See W. S. Nott Co. Telephone 876. THE MINNEAPOLIS JOURNAL. !NorthwesternMines ORE FOR THE DOCKS Tremendous Shipments of Three Northern Roads. PORT RECORDS TO BE BROKEN Train Every Thirty Minutes for Twelve Hours—Eautern In Doing; Well. Special to The Journal. Duluth, Minn.,June 22. —Ore is going out at a tremendous oace. At the docks of the Duluth, Missabe & Northern road one day this week 64,000 gross tons were shipped, fourteen cargoes in all, making a very large average per ship. The Duluth & Iron Range road is now moving ore at the rate of about 1,300 carloads daily and figuring on an average movement for the season of 800,000 tons monthly. For one consecutive twelve hours this week there was a train of ore into the receiving yards every thirty minutes, that is more than 25,000 gross tons received in the twelve hours. This pace is comethlng that has not been equalled anywhere in the mining business at any time. The two roads are expected to break all records of lake ports this year. The Eastern Minnesota road is shipping heavily also, far more so than last year, and will make a record for it self for the year. The force of men on ore docks has been largely Increased and wages have been voluntarily raised, day dockmen now getting $2 and night men $2.25 a day. The Union Steel company has bought the diamond drill outfit of E. O. Sweeney and will operate it in its explorations near Hibbing and elsewhere. There are three drills in the outfit together with all out side equipment. The exploration of the company's property in 3-57-21 continues and with good results. In drilling at the Arcturus soft ore of good irrade was struck under some fifty feet of taconite rock; the drills being still in ore , no knowledge of the value of the find can ;-et be had. There are four drills at work in this property. At the Clark mine 270 men are em ployed and a large output will be made this year. The stockpile of last winter contained 80,000 tons which is being shipped as fast as may be, together with a large daily hoist. Chisholm mine is sinking its No. 1 shaft to 145 feet, and will be shipping some ore later in the year. The first main level is 115 feet underground. About 100 men are employed. There are some 10,000,000 tons of desirable ore shown in this property and explorations are con tinuing. Stevenson mine commenced shipping from the open pit the past week, using its 105-ton shovel in the work. Stockpile shipments had been under way some time. It is announced that shipments from Biwabik mine will not exceed 500,000 tons this year. STRIKE OX THE HERCULES Silver-Lead Belt of the Coeor d' Alenes Greatly Interested. Special to The Journal. Wallace, Idaho, June 22. —The strike an nounced last week as having been made on the Hercules has caused more interest locally than any discovery in the silver lead beU of the Cover d'Alenes since the finding of the Sixteen to One mine three years ago. Nothing is yet known of the extent of the strike, work underground having been suspended as soon as the round of holes which showed up the ore were fired. The main tunnel has been run into the mountain for a distance of about 1,200 feet, running parallel and near the ledge The failure of the recent meeting of lead- miners in New York to reach an agreement with the smelter trust was a great disappointment to the people here, although the mine owners who have re turned profess not to be discouraged at the outlook. The contracts they now have with the smelter trust are good, for the remainder of the year, and before that time they expect some understanding will be arrived at. The smelter men claim, to be masters of the situation, and that the miners must come to their terms, but the mine owners do not feel that way about it. They are all standing closely together, and if all should agree to shut down, it would cause some of them some loss, but would also bring the smelters to terms, as the Cover d' Alenes ores are an abso lute necessity to the smelters. GOL.DEN HORN MINE Recent Assays Indicate It Will Not Belie Its Name. Special to The Journal. Rat Portage, Ont., June 22. —Manager 'H. Rideout has sent a crew of men and supplies to commence development work on the Golden Horn mine. The new com pany is composed wholly of Canadian capitalists with previous gold mining ex perience in Nova Scotia. There are four well-defined veins running the length of the property, a distance of 2,500 feet, all of which are within a width of 400 feet as shown on the surface. There is a shaft already on No. 2 vein, seventy-five feet deep, and a new shaft has been started on No. 1 vein which assayed $8 in gold on the surface. This vein is five feet in width and when the first five feet were taken out a carefully averaged sample assayed $44 per ton. The English Mikado Mine company has given th°i local management instructions to proceed vigorously with the work of opening up reserves of ore by drifts and winzes. Heretofore the mill has been running the ore as fast as it could be mined, but recently some lean ore was encountered and it was necessary on ac count of the expense to shut down the mill. Already richer ore is being en countered and the improvement is very encouraging. CONSOUDATION TALKED Baltic, Trlmonntnin and Champion Under One Management. Special to The Journal. Houghton, Mich., June 22.—1t is the general impression that the Baltic, Tri mountain and Champion mines wlil be consolidated, under the so-called Standard Oil management, which is in control of the Arcandan, Isle Royale and Trimoun tain mines, among Lake Superior proper ties, in addition to controlling the Amal gamated Copper company, which is heav ily interested in the leading Montana cop per mines. Such a consolidation would make one of the greatest mines of the world within the next few years. All three mines are opened on the Bal tic amygdaloid, which Improves in rich ness toward the south, so far as opened. The lode is of phenomenal width, and, strange to say, seems to carry the most copper where widest, which is the re verse of the usual rule. The Baltic was the finest mine opened on this amygda loid,'whence the name of the lode. It was opened in 1897 and became a pro ducer to a limited extent in 1899. It is now making an average of better than 125 tons of mineral per month, with the use of two stamps at the Atlantic mill, but for the past ten days has been turn ing out seven to eight tons daily, or at the rate of better than 175 tons per month. It Is probable that the properties named carry at least twice as much copper per acre of area as the Calumet and Hecla. This Is not to be construed as meaning that these properties are twice as good as the Calumet and Hecla, but is a state ment of fact regarding their remarkable copper resources. It may be safely said that the consolidation of these three young mines will make a property that will rank with the ten greatest copper producers of the globe within the next few years, and which will give employ ment to thousands of men and build up one of the world's greatest mining camps a few miles southwest of Houghton. The Quincy Is now stamping between 3,000 and 3,500 tons of rock daily at its mills. The rock is not chosen with a view to making a good showing, but is strictly "mine run" and reflects accurate ly the average underground condition of this great mine. 1 Arrangements are being perfected for the increase of production from the con glomerate mine of the Franklin Junior. The third : stamp ;at : the Arcadian "is ! being placed in readiness for work. ' It is the general impression locally that some sort of a deal has been made or will soon be made between the Arcandian and Cen tennial by which the rock of the latter ; will be treated by the former, which has a surplus milling capacity. . ROCK AND SHAFT HOUSE Tamarack's New Building to Be Ab -1 • solutely Fire Proof. Special to The Journal. Calumet, Mich., June 22.—Underground operations at No. 5 shaft of the Tamarack mine are now practically confined to the cutting of' the plats at the different levels, four having been cut to date. Five power drills are in use underground. The crosscut towards the vein at the first level is in about 350 feet, some 400 feet remaining before the lode is reached. The new combination rock and shaft house, work on which was begun last October' is well advanced and it is expected the iron company will be through about July 1. The building is built entirely of steel,' nearly 800 tons being used in the con-' struction. The rock-house is 50x90 feet with extension 30 feet wide along two sides. The shaft house is 35x35 feet and 104 feet high from ground to headsheave and 131 feet to the top. The structure being entirely of steel and the roof lined with asbestos it is absolutely fire proof. Three crushers of the reciprocating jaw type will be installed at first, but when the openings underground become extensive five more crushers will be put in. The shaft on the Osceola amygdaloid lode at the Allouez property is now about 1,200 feet in depth. In cutting the plat at the twelfth level some mass and bar rel copper was encountered. Exploratory operations in the Faull shaft at the Mayflower property still continue. This week a blast revealed some very rich copper rock, the extent of which has not yet been determined. The tunnel which is being driven on the Old Colony property is now in 2,200 feet. Among the lodes passed through was one sixty feet wide. No doubt steps will be taken to further determine the extent and quality of this lode. No. 1 shaft at the Tecumseh is now be low the tenth level. Recently a lode fifty-one feet wide was passed through. It is the intention of the management to Banda Rossa at Lake Harriet Banda Rossa, under the leadership of Sig. Eugenio Sorrentino, opened its third engagement at Lake Harriet this after noon. Minneapolis has come to feel a sort of proprietary interest in this famous "Red Band of Italy," an interest which is evidenced by the constantly increas ing attendance. ■ • "When I started on my first western tour," Sig. Sorrentino said, "friends in New York gave me to understand that the people out here would not appreciate the better class of music, and advised me to rehearse the popular airs of the day. They were mistaken. I have not met with more appreciative audiences anywhere than here at Lake Harriet. They told me Min neapolitans spent all their time in mak ing flour. That is no truer than the state ment that New Yorkers do nothing but speculate in stocks." Banda Rossa has been considerably aug mented since its engagement here last summer. Since then Sig. Sorrentino has visited his native land and brought with him a number of distinguished soloists, all of whom will be given an opportunity to be heard in solo work before the lake season closes. While he was in Italy Sig. Sorrentino wrote an arrangement of Puccini's new opera, "La Tosca,". which was first pre sented in Naples last year, and which was given by the Grau company during the ;i?.st season in New York and Phila delphia. Sorrentino's arrangement was highly praised by the composer himself, who expressed a wish that the music be printed before the leader's departure for America. His new march, as yet un named, was to be played for the first time in public this afternoon. IE has a dash and swing that will give it high rank among compositions of like character. It bids fair to rival the "Willow Grove" in popularity. The work upon which Sorrentino prides himself, however, is an arrangement of Mascagni's "Hymn to the Sun," from his new opera, "Iris." This composition has been accounted Mascagni's greatest work, and its presentation here will be eagerly awaited by admirers of the talented cre ator of "Cavaleria Rusticana." Among other arrangements recently completed is one of Bizet's "Patrie"; an other of "La Boheme," and still another of Giordano's "Andrae Chemier." All of these will be given before the season closes. The band will give two concerts to morrow afternoon and evening. A con cert will also be given this evening. The DRAMATIC CRITICISM AND LIBEL LAW An lowa Court Sets an Important Precedent on the Province of the Critic. New York Dramatic Mirror. A remarkable case has just been con cluded in the lowa courts involving the law as to libel and the right to criticize. In fact, the appellate judge, in giving his opinion in the case, seems to have gone further in favor of the critic than has any other judge in any case in memory, al though by no means haß he departed from the spirit of the common law on the sub ject as it relates to constitutional rights of free speech and writing. Some years ago, it will be remembered, three women called "the Cherry Sisters," injected an unusual rural element into current vaudeville. They were not taken seriously, and evidently did not wish to be taken seriously; and their peculiar originalities, though they quickly palled, won them considerable money. They long ago disappeared from eastern ken, but it seems that they recently have again ap peared before the public in the west, where they are native. The western pa pers, however, have ridiculed them as the eastern papers did, and thus the action for libel. The Dcs Moines Leader as sailed them with amusing but, to them, offensive characterization, and they sought heavy damages therefor in the courts. When the case was tried in the district court the presiding judge invited one of the sisters to "act" before him. She did so, and as a result the judge at once directed a verdict for the defendant news paper. The opinion of the court contained this: If there "was ever a case justifying ridicule and sarcasm, yea, even gross exaggeration, it is the one now before us, according to the record. The performance given by the plain tiff and the company of which she was a mem ber was not only childish, but ridiculous In the extreme. A dramatic critic should be al lowed considerable license in such a case. The public should be informed as to the char acter of the entertainment, and in the absence of proof of actual malice the publication should be held to be privileged. The newspaper had pleaded in defense that the performances of the plaintiffs were "coarse and farcical, wholly without merit and ridiculous," and that "the article complained of appeared as a criticism of the serformance and to expose the char acter of the entertainment." In the article the sisters were described, one of them as "an old jade of 50 summers/ another as "a frisky filly of 40," and the third, "the flower of the family," as "a capering mon strosity of 35." The "criticism" went on: Their long, skinny arms, equipped with talons at the extremities, swung mechanically at the suffering audience. The mouths of their rancid features opened like caverns and sounds like the wailing of damned souls is sued therefrom. They pranced around the stage with a motion that suggested a cross between the danse dv ventre and a fox trot, strange creatures with painted features and hideous mien. Effle is spavined, Addle is stringhalt and Jessie, the only one who push this shaft until the Osceola amy daloid lode is encountered. TRAMWAY FOR NEW YEAR Conveying Cuuucity of Twenty-nve Tons an Hour. Special to The Journal. Lewieton, Mont., June 22.—The New Year Gold Mine company, at New Year, has this week contracted for the placing of a wire rope tramway from its mines to the mill. This will be a Bleichert wire rope tramway of a total length of 4,909 feet, with a difference of level between the mine terminal and the mill terminal of 564 feet. The cars will be placed 240 feet apart on the cable and will have a carrying capacity of 600 pounds each, and the tramway will be capable of conveying twenty-five tons an hour from the re ceiving to the discharging terminal. The speed of the traction cable will be 333 Ms feet per minute and when in operation the tramway will develop seven-horse power. A thirty-ton shipment of high grade ore is being made this week from the Spotted Horse mine at Maiden to the East Helena smelter, and these shipments will con tinue for some time, as the ore is in sight to guarantee- them. Articles of incorporation of the Kendall Gold Mining company were filed the past week with the county auditor at Spokane. j The new company is capitalized for $2,500,000, with shares at $5 par value. The directors are A. B. Campbell, John A. Finch and R. K. Neill of Spokane, Henry Wick of New York and Harry T. Kendall of Lewistown, Mont. Spruce District Reduction Plant. SDecial to The Journal. Deadwood, S. D., June 22. —A reduction Dlant of some sort is to be built this sum mer in the Spruce gulch district, by Colo rado capitalists, who are about to purchase a large block of ground that has been bonded by Ed Hanschka, of this city. The group takes in several well-known producers of a high grade of ore. It is said the new plant will be a smelter of the latest design. A large amount of ore has been blocked out that will also cyanide well. The deal Is practically closed. Holy Terror Running us Usual. Special to The Journal. Keystone, S. D., June 22.—The report that has been circulated in the Black Hills papers that the Holy Terror mine, of this city, had worked out all of its ore, is untrue. The company has recently sunk its shaft an ad ditional 100 feet and the ore ledge at that depth is as large and much richer than on the upper levels. The company- has been crippled somewhat by lawsuits, but as soon as matters are finally settled, the mine will again become a steady producer. Ten stamps of the thirty are dropping steadily on ore. programs for the Sunday concerts are as follows: Afternoon. March (new and unnamed) Sorrentino Song, "Mine. Still Mine" Sorrentino Trumpet Solo by Sig. Bottega. "Reminiscences of AH Nations" Godfrey (With Incidental Solos.) Grand Selection from "The Barber of Seville" -.-..; Rossini Solos: Trumpet, Sig.

Grand Selection from the Opera of "An drae Chemeir" Giardano "War Songs of the Boys in Blue".Laurendeau Sunday at Como, The concert program of the Minnesota State Band, for Sunday, at Como Park, offers sev eral novelties. These will be found fully eaual to the successes which, last Sunday evening, drew 10,000 people to the park. Berlalz' "Marche Hongroise," to be given in the afternoon, deserves particular attenl tion. This piece, from "La Damnation de Faust." is a fine composition, founded on the "Radoczy March," and has become popular with all the big; orchestras of the country. Another composition is the overture "Le Roi de Yuetol." Admirers of lighter music will be entertained by selections from "Wang," the medley, "Sunny Tennessee," and the negroioso, "Hunky Dory." Mention should be made of "The Chase," a well known descriptive piano solo. The band ar rangement is to be given for the first time. The famous "William Tell' overture will be given in the evening, as well as a new march. "Commonwealth," by Hall, the com poser of "Greeting to Bangor." A xylophone solo will be given by James McCarthy. Orchestra at Wildwood. The week has been a busy one at Wildwood, White Bear lake. This resort is becoming very popular for school piqnics, and not a day was passed the present month, excepting Sundays, without one or more picnic parties being on the grounds. The attractions of the place are on a very liberal scaje. An enlarged dancing pavilion, provision for an amphitheater fronting the lake and fine bathing facilities are to be commended in particular. Music is provided during the week- for dan cing, and on Sundays two concerts are given. The Wolff and Barrett orchestra will give popular concerts to-morrow afternoon and evening. The programs are mostly made up of catchy, bright music, waltzes, medleys, negro melodies, etc. showed her stockings, has legs with calves as classic in the outlines as the curves of a broornhandle. In deciding the case the court held that the defense was clearly a plea of privilege, and that the direction of a verdict for the defendant was on the theory that the plea was established. It was held that a news paper has the right freely to criticize any and every kind of public performance, pro vided that in doing so it Is not actuated by malice; and the holding as to the fore going characterization was that it was not malicious. It was admitted by the court that ordinarily publication of such an article would of itself be an indication of malice, but as applied to the facts of this case it was not so held. In the course of the opinion sustaining the verdict for the defendant, the appellate court also said: One who goea upon the stage to exhibit himself to the public,, or who gives any kind of a performance to which the public is in vited, may be freely criticised. He may be held up to ridicule, and entire freedom of expression is guaranteed dramatic critics, provided they are not actuated by malice or evil purpose in what they write. Freedom of discussion is guaranteed by our fundamen tal law and a long line of judicial decisions. As said in the Golt case, the editor of a newspaper has the right, if not the duty, of publishing for the information of the public fair and reasonable comments, however se vere in terms, upon anything which is made by its owner a subject of public exhibition, as upon any other matter of public interest, and such a publication falls within the class of privilegedcommunications for which no action will lie without proof of actual malice. Sure ly, if one makes himself ridiculous in his public performances, he may be ridiculed by those whose duty or right it is to inform the public regarding the character of the per formance. Mere exaggeration does not of it self make the comment uniform. It has been held no libel for one newspaper to say to another, "the most vulgar, ignorant and scur rilous journal ever published in Great Brit ain." Ridicule is often the strongest weapon in the hands of a public writer; and if it be fairly used, the presumption of malice which would otherwise arise is rebutted, and it be comes necessary to Introduce evidence of actual malice or of some indirect motive or wish to gratify private spirit. There is a manifest distinction between matters of fact and comment on criticism of undisputed facts of conduct. Unless there be true liberty of speech and of the press, liberty guaranteed by the constitution is nothing more than a name. This was an exceptional case that called for exceptional latitude. The court with out doubt has followed the spirit of the law in determining it. Persons that impose themselves upon any public profession for which they are in no way fitted cannot expect the same treatment from the press that legitimate pursuit of a vocation calls for.

Senator Hanna Tells Of His Career in College Cleveland—United States Senator Mar cus A. Hanna made his debut as a hu morist this afternoon, delivering a witty speech before 2,000 students and friends of Western Reserve University, the oc casion being the annual commencement. In a most entertaining manner the senator told the audience how he failed to become an alumnus of the institution. President Thwing had urged the senator's attend ance at the commencement because of the fact that years ago Mr. Hanna was a scientific student at the university. He lasted but two months. The exercises were held in a large tent and the weather was so warm that the perspiration poured down the senator's face as he said: After my acknowledging to President Thwing that I am not a student or scholar, compelling me to make a speech is rather tough. It adds to the humidity of the atmos phere. (Senator Hanna wiped the perspira tion from-his face, while the audience ap plauded.) It was pure diffidence upon my part, ladies, that made me wish not to speak. I had heard of these educational circuses be fore. I will, however, endeavor to modestly state my connection with this college. I was a member of the scientific department years ago. My mother one day asked me whether I wanted to go to college or to work. I selected work. My mother was larger than I, and she said college. I went to college, and I think I remained there two monthe. When I entered college there were five men in my class. It dwindled down to three, and when I left there wasn't any. I met in with a number of sophomores shortly after I reached college, and I found them to be mighty good fellows. They inveigled me one day into playing a burlesque upon the seniors. I got up the burlesque programs and was handing them out at the door of the college on commence- ment night when a professor seized me rough ly by the coat collar and asked me what I was doing. I told him I was distributing lit- Anf'inn PiehAnnmil •—.■** the flsh'ng season again approaches, the question again pr*> #» ■. «.CII tlUll rlSlim lUOII ■ sents itselt to those who delight In the Art of Angling whereta get good tackle.
