Some of the students of the Indi ana State University, were supitosed to drink brandy. Where they ob tained it was a mystery. Dr. Daily determined to ferrit out the secret. Calling into a drug store, the pro prietor asked him, "How that stu dent Mr. Carter came on V Smelling a rat the doctor answer ed in an evasive manner, and soon drew ont of the apothecary that the students under suspicion bad been in the habit of purchasing brandy: that they said he was quite low, and was kept alive by stimulants : that the young men seemed very devoted to him. - Now the secret was ont. The Carter was a fictitious charae ter. and the doctor had the secret. . .However, he kept his own counsel The next time the students were as sembled la tile chapel for prayers, he cast his eyes over the crowd and satisfied himself that Carter's uurseS were -all present. ; The devotions were duly conducted, and theu he called the atteution of the students, remarking that ho had a mournful doty to fferform as the President of the University it became ids du ty to announce the death of tlieiia tellyw student, Mr. Carter.

ON NUMBER 20. The decrease of the National Debt for the month of September was aliout seven and a half millions. For tho seven months of General Grant's administration, it has been fifty-seven millions. Mr. Boutwell is doing well, let the grumblers, say what they may. The San Francisco Bulletin ridi cules the proposition to remove the National Capital and says 1 "Just now, we bave not oot a hundred millions to spend for thia business, and the conveatioa at St Iiouis can use its wind to better advantage in discussing tb j most practible way of reducing the national debt."
