President Harlan of Lake Forest col
lege, Chicago, objects to the use 'of
the word co-ed. He asks the friends
of the women students not to use It,
anH Urges the students themselves not
to allow It. "They should he referred
to as women," he says. "We want our
young ladles to he true women and not
imitators of college men."
Ex-Governor Robert X. Taylor of
Tennessee, who wants to be senator,
has written a letter to an Inquiring pro
hibitionist. "I have always been on the
side of law and order," he says- "I
have advocated temperance in every
lecture I have ever delivered and in my
commencement addresses to young
men. I have voted for it, and if I am
elected to the United States Senate, I
shall aupport the Hepburn-Doliver
.. The screw manufacturers of England
and Germany have formed a trust, with
an agreement that the Germannakers
shall keep out of the British market.
It Is iald that prices have been ad
vanced fifty per cent., and Consul Ma
hln at Nottingham suggests that this
may provide an opportunity for Amer
ican' makers. The Hartford Times
. thinks that when the latest pattern of
Hartford screw machines gets to work
the foreign makers will possibly have
to revise their trust arrangements.
A keeper was cleaning the hyenas'
? cage at Hall by the Sea, England. One
of the animals improved the opprotun
ity to turn upon the man In an ugly
mood. The keeper promptly defended
himself, and, to teach the animal man
ners, gave it a drubbing until It slunk
xyrfiifnef.'Oae of the spectators, a
dear old lady, then remonstrated with
the keeper and thought he had acted
cruelly. The man stepped out of the
cage, and, advancing to the lady, said:
"P'raps, mum, you'd like to come in
side and manage him!" The invitation
was not accepted.
' An effort is being made in Worcester
to break the will of the late William
A. Richardson, who recently committed
suicide by 'hanging, and in his will left
stock valued at over $200,000 to the city
'of "Worcester for its park system. Rich
ardson was a meat cutter, and when in
his prime made $35 a week, lived on a
quart of milk and a loaf of break a
day, saved all his earnings and make
fortunate investments. An Inventory
of his estate showed stock valued at
over $250,000. The claim of those con
testing the will is that he was of un
sound mind. Ex-Congressman J)hn R.
Thayer appears for the wilt, and Attor
ney General Parker for the next of kin
who make the contest.
It was related that a doctor was
summoned to testify in a Virginia court
regarding an accident case, the main
faots of which were that the plaintiff
claimed to have been blown up,' and
came down In a sitting posture on some
red hot iron. He claimed he could not
extricate himself from this position for
fully fifteen minutes. In order to rebut,
the'lawyer for the defense asked him
questions: "Doctor, if a man had sat
on red hot iron for fifteen minutes,
would he not have-been burned to the
bone?" After a moment's thought the
witness, Dr. Boutelle, replied: "Well if
a man came to my office and told me
such a etory, I should wish to take it
with much lemon juice or a lot of
salt. But, on the whole, I do not think
.that a man sitting on red hot iron is
the best Judge of the lapse of time."
"No more questions, doctor."
Emperor William when he goes voy
aging in his yacht is frequently in a
merry mood. He usually has on board
as guests a number of prominent men,
with a few of whom early rising is a
fad. His majesty, however, rises eyery
morning at 6 o'clock, and he often
amuses himself by pounding on the
doors of his guests' cabins and ordering
them to Jump up and dress. Then af
ter breakfast the Emperor compels the
guests to line up and be drilled by the
yacht's drill master in true military
style.. Some of the gentlemen are sure
to be portly and awkward, and the
queer figures these cut excite their im
perial, master to hearty laughter. The
gymnasium on the yacht contains an
electrlo horse, which jumps, kicks and
plunges wildly, so -that only a good
rider can escape a baa ta.ll The Em
peror is extremely fond of riding this
electric plunger and thus making fun
for his guests.
There are unfeeling, yea brutal, peo
ple in this world who will mildly joy
in the thought that the right of a man
to kill cats that attack his property
has again been judicially affirmed
Though the right has never been seri
ously questioned, it always causes
trouble when exercised on some one's
pet which has strayed away and gone
on a predatory excursion, and meets an
untimely death at the hands of some
unsympathetic man. In the case which
has just been decided at Worcester,
Massachusetts, some valuable part
ridges were menaced. Dr. Clifton F.
Hodge of Clark University says that
four of these partridges are priceless.
The cat in question endeavored to get
in and make a meal of these expensive
bk-ds, and the court held that a man
has a perfect right to protect his prop
erty from an animal preying on it, and
he incidentally added the dictum that
"a cat is the most untamed animal in
The most untamed animal in Christ
endom! And this "the harmless, nec
essary cat." We pause for the com
ments of the cat-lovers.
They are pretty thorough in Houston,
Texas. An ordinance was made there
awhile ago against the making of "goo
goo' eyes by men. It Is going to be
enforced, and as It is it has become
necessary to officially and judicially de
fine the words. The definition has been
made, and it is worth attention, for
while everybody who is anybody knows
what "goo-goo eyes" are few could tell.
This is what they are, according to the
Houston deflner: "By the term "goo
goo eyes" Is meant any contortion, un
usual m'ovement or any fixed unusual
attitude of the eyes, provided the said
contortion, unusual movement or unus
ual fixed attitude is made with the in
tent of attracting, alluring or conjuring
the attention of any woman or female,
as the said ordinance recites. The 'in
tent' is the point on which the main
construction must be placed. A stare is
a 'goo-goo' if it is committed with in
tent; a wink accompanied by intent is
a 'goo-goo;' likewise the cocking of an
eye. ogling, making wide eyes, all come
within the broad sweep' of the term
'goo-goo,' if accompanied toy intent
The meat of the nut is intent With
out it no person is guilty of the crime
of 'goo-gooing.' "
Pretty clear and comprehensive. Per
haps this definition will get into the
next great dictionary. Sheep's eyes
were long ago defined. Thus the Spec
tator said: "Those (eyes) of an amor
ous, roguish look derive their title even
from the sheep; and we say such a one
has a sheep's eye, not so much to de
note the Innocence as the simple sly
ness of the cast."
The United States hasn't been in the
Philippines long enough to make Ma
nila a very healthy place. The official
report of the Board of Health for the
Philippine islands, June 15, 1905, on
vital and sanitary statistics in May last
shows that Manila has a population of
219,941, the Americans numbering 4,389;
Spaniards, 2,528; other Europeans, 1,117;
Chinese, 21,230, and' Filipinos, 189,782.
There were 600 births reported in May,
of which 45 were Illegitimate; but the
actual number of births was much
greater. Ten of the births were Amer
ican, the rate being 26-6 per 1,000 Amer
icans. The Filipino rate was 36.1 per
1,000; the Spanish, 13.8; other Euro
peans, 10-46; Chinese, 17.20. The deaths
of persons under 5 were 303. Between 5
and 20 the deaths were few, but from
20 to 40 years the military age they
are numerous. From 20 to 25 the
deaths. In May were 30; from 25 to 30
years, 32; from 30 to 40 years, 58. The
anntfal death rate per 1,000, calculated
on the basis of the deaths in the first
months of 1905, were: January, 36.69;
February, 36.05; March, 30.15; April,
29.32; May, 28.16.
Perhaps Manila is now as near
Heaven as any other place. So dying
there isn't a3 sad as ?t used to be.
The lessons of the Russo-Japanese
war are all going to be learned. The
Revue de Paris has an article iby an
expert on the naval lessons of the war.
What most impresses Frenchmen, he
says, is the comparative failure of the
torpedo. Apart from the surprise at
tack of February 8, 1904, in which the
torpedo failed to effect all that was ex
pected of it, the part which it played in
the Japanese success was almost neg
ligible. Yet Japan had sixty torpedo
boats and destroyers which gave evi
dence of extraordinary endurance and
stubbornness. The Russians had an al
most equal number of those Vessels,
which were still less successful. The
writer then goes on to argue that tor
pedoes carried by battleships and
cruisers, and discharged from tubes
below water are extremely difficult to
work, and were not used on a single
occasion in the late war. He considers
that the United States was well advis
ed in surpassing this useless torpedo
in its new ships. "The torpedo can
only be -used at a short distance and
as a surprise, it is the weapon of small
vessels. That of large ships- is the gun;
and it was by its guns that the Japan
ese fleet won its victories. It is almost
certain that the guns have not eunk
battleships, but guns reduced them to
silence and confusion and delivered
them up to the torpedo boat."
Another point upon which the writer
dwells is that even vessels subjected to
a very heavy fire were still able to
keep afloat and reach port with their
own eteam, and that, now as in the
past, it is the losses among the crews
rather than material Injuries which put
ships out of action. The loss of men
who are in their way specialists is ir
remediable. He then quotes figures to
show that a battleship which has suf
fered no serious injury and is still pro
vided with arms and ammunition may
be forced by losses among her officers
and crew to seek safety in flight.

Tribe Has Endeavored for Years to Re
cover Them From the Pawnees.
The Dog Soldier band of Cheyenne
Indians from western Oklahoma has
just completed a visit with the Skedee
band of the Pawnees, near Pawnee.
The Cheyennes to the number of 300
came to recover two sacred arrows cap
tured from them by the Pawnees many
years ago, and this visit was the first
time the two bands had met in friendly
council since the time when both were
on the warpath- The Pawnees, enter
tained the Cheyennes at a war dance
and gave them many presents, Includ
ing ponies, blankets, calico and, provi
sions, but would not relinquish the,
sacred arrows. THhe Cheyennes per
formed what they called the lightning
The two sacred arrows were captured
from the Cheyennes in battle on Platte
River, Neb., about sixty years ago. A
Pawnee who had previously been crip
pled and who preferred death to the
suffering caused by his wounds had
stationed himself far in advance of the
other Pawnees in a clum of bushes.
As he was picking off a great many
Cheyonnes with his arrows they saw
that it was necessary to dislodge him.
Accordingly a bunch of Cheyenne
warriors on horseback made a dash for
the clump of bushes, their sacred ar
rowkeeper in the lead. He had the ar
rows, four In number, fastened to a
long spear, and as he struck at the
Pawnee the crippled man dodged to one
side and grasped the spear, wresting
it from the Cheyenne's hand. Almost
simultaneously with the charge of the
Cheyennes, a few Pawnees In the rear,
seeing the danger, of their, crippled
brave, rushed to i; his assistance, Tha
Cheyennes were thus routed before
they could regatn( their sacred arrows.
About ten years' later the Cheyennes
recovered two of their sacred arrows
by giving the Pefwnees 200 ponlts. In
their negotiations here the Cheyennes
were unable to, convince the Pawnees
that the two arrows still In the latter's
possession should be surrendered at
this time. The Pawnees said that If
the Dog Soldier Cheyennes s;hould prove
worthy friends of the Skedee band
after the intended visit of the Pawnees
to the Cheyenne next summer the
Pawnees may listen to a proposal from
the Cheyennes. At this time the Chey
ennes must be satisfied with the pres
ents they have received. Frofti the

One woman, known throughout
American society as one of the
potential leaders of the Newport smart
set, thought herself above the tra
ditions of the Carolina ball. She
was a guest at. this dance when in
Charleston and began the evening by
Sitting out dances in secluded corners
outside the ball rcom. Comment ran
rife. The 16 managers consulted to
gether. The president, a man of great
manner and unfailing elegance, took
upon himself the duty of correcting
the New York woman.
Finding her in a secluded corner, as
usual, he kindly informed her of the
comment she brought upon herself
by breaking the best known rule of
the society. She was inclined to be
ungracious about it and intimated
that the managers were ol dfogles.
"It is done in London and New
York," shed eflantly said.
"But not in Charleston, madam,"
answered the president, as he offered
her his arm, which he never removed
until she took it. He then led h!f
back to the ball rcom and offered her
a chair.
