j The growth of the University ia quite as
j notable in its equipment, its Acuity, and
its new departments as in its attendance.
For example, look at .
The School of Music
established two years ago. It has a faculty
of seven instructors, trained under the
best teache:s in this country and Europe.
It occupies a separate building fitted up
especially tcr its needs. Instruction on
all stringed instruments, including violin,
viola, mandolin, guitar, etc., is free. For
; vaice cad piano the fees are very low. A
i magnificent pips organ for Commence
ment Hall is being constructed and it will
i be for the use of students of the School of
Music. If you are interested in the study
I of mur.ic, write for full information.
Other departments of the University are
{ developing with equal rapiditj*. The Pre
tuedical Department, with its four new
instructors, deserves special mention.
WrLe for a special pamphlet about it
The University has a faculty of sixty
five instructors, graduates of the foremost
| schools in the world.
The Winter Quarter begins January i,
and the Spring Quarter April I.

Fedora, In her long, white apron and
big sun bat, color box and palette in
hand, sauntered ont Into tbe orchard
and sat down under the shade of an
apple tree. A light breeze stirred the
boughs, on which the sunlight gleamed
In great gold patches, and countless
song birds darted" from limb to limb,
making the air vocal with their music.
One plump, red breasted fellow
perched himself directly in front of
Fedora and with head on one side re
garded her Intently.
The girl returned, bis gaze first with
amusement, then with interest and
finally with sudden inspiration. She
selected a crayon from her box and
dexterously jotted down a few out
lines. - Then she consulted the bright
bits of color she had placed on her
palette and .with a sweep here and
there of her long paint brush trans
ferred the nucleus of her small feather
ed observer to a sketch card. She held
it up to the light and looked at It crit
ically for a moment, then Jaid It on
the long grass beside her and leaned
back against the trunk of the tree, her
hands crossed loosely liehiud her head,
her eyes resting in dreamy contempla
tion on the gleaming ileitis beyond.
Above her the faint ruqtllgg of the
wind In the leaves drowned the silence.
Presently a shadow ept across the
glimmering sunlight. Fedora glanced
up, and a faint'color tinged her clieeks
It was the professor.
"If you are too busy"? he began,
looking down at her a little dubiously.
"Oh, no," she broke in quickly, smil
ing up at him as she spoke. "I am
never busy." Fedora prided herself
upon that accomplishment. "Do sit
down," she went on, with a bright
look, pointing to tho grassy plot oppo
site her. The professor hesitated for
a moment, then suddenly complied
with the request.
"A ulce (lay," lie remarked careless
ly ns he sat down.
"Charming," returned Fedora, sur
veying liim, with a Biniic. it iKici sud
denly dawned upon lier that the pro
fessor was a singularly good looking
man to be so old?almost 40. And in
spite of his twoseoro years she found
herself looking with approval, almost
admiration, into his deep, clear eyes,
above which the thick masses of brown
hair waved back from an Intellectual
forehead. (All professors have intel
lectual foreheads.)
"I don't like to interrupt you," he
said, with a doubtful glance at the in
cipient sketch and Fedora's small
paint stained fingers, "but tjiere Is
something 1 "wanted to say," he went
on, tugging at his watch charm.
"Really?" She gave a little cough
nnd turned her eyes expectantly upon
him.
"It's?it's Important," faltered the
professor awkwardly, meeting her
gaze.
Fedora broke into a little soft laugh,
and two dimples catne Into her face.
"What's the matter?" he said, look
ing at her In astonishment, a suspicion
arising in his mind that lie was being
reated with unnecessary levity.
"You looked so?so serious," she re
plied, with such a charming little grim
ace and a look so profoundly Innocent
that the professor immediately dis
missed his suspicion as unworthy.
"If you don't mind, though." he pur
sued, a little uneasily, his eyes on her
face. "I would ratlier you would not?
that yon would be a little serious."
"Yes. certainly." assented Fcdora,N
with alacrity, pulling a straight face,
but with a glimmer of a smile showing
about her mouth. Then the professor
cleared his throat and went on with
a slight hesitation:
"I have a proposition." lie stopped
short and looked at her In a helpless
sort of way.
"All, I see!" she exclaimed, with a
merry laugh. "And you want the?hy
pothesis?"
_ "Precisely so,""returned the profess
or, his face brightening. lie thought
that his task would not be a difficult
one with such an appreciative young
woman.
"And now to the point." he contin
ued, giving her a serious look.
"A point indicates mere position and <
has no magnitude," Interposed Fedora
flippantly.
"I suppose uot." replied the professor
?with slight sternness. "But it Is not a
problem In geometry this time," he
concluded, the glint of a smile hover
ing about liis Hps. his voice calm.
"Oh!" exclaimed the girl with wide
eyes, as she folded both hands in her
lap and fixed upon him a look of grave
attention.
He shifted his position a little, pulled
at a tuft of grass, then looked across
at her with sudden resolution and
poke, "Suppose?that? a?man"?
The professor stopped short and
cleared his throat again In a dlscon-'
certed sort of way.
Fedora met" his gaze with a mis
chievous smile and chewed the end, of
her long paint brush.
"Weil?" she said, dropping her chin
into one small hand.
'That a man is"?
"Yes?"
"Well?in love, you know," he blurt
ed out in desperation, flushing to the
brim of his scholarly hat.
Fedora's face was suffused with sud
den color, and she gave an InaHiculate
little murmur quite beyond Interpreta
tion. ? 3
There was nn Interval, during which
neither spoke -for several minutes. The
professor. was the first to break the
pause.
"Madly, terribly, foolishly In love,"
he said, emphasizing the last adverb
as though it included the sum total of
human Imbecility, fedora shot at him
a glance of bewilderpient.
"To think," she said, making a
mental observation, "that he could be
so violent."
. There was another pause. She dug
one dainty lmnd into the soft turf and
looked at him shyly out of the corner
of her eye. The professor spoke again.
"What do you think of it?" he asked
abruptly, his gaze resting upon her
face with suppressed eagerness.
"1?don't know." She said It slowly
and blushed as she spoke. A mingled
expression of doubt and perplexity be
came visible on the professor's face as
he waited for her to go on.
But "Fedora remained silent, her eyes
resting dreamily upon a little white
cloud drifting across the horizon.
The situation was growing awkward.
The professor felt that his grasp was
slipping away from him. and went on,
a little anxiously:
"You know about such things?girls
generally do. Tell me?what shall I
do?"
He toyed nervously with ivdead twig
as he spoke and searched her face nar
rowly for encouragement.
Fedora reflected for a moment, then
nodded with decision.
"It depends," she said dryly, fixing
her eyes upon his with a serious look.
"Yes?" The professor turned to lier
with a quick smile.
Fedora pondered again, then dropped
her eyes half timidly and twisted the
corner pf her handkerchief.
"On?the other one, you know?the
girl," she went on, with a soft blush.
The professor gazed at her In silence,
his kind eyes full of perplexity.
"I>oe8 she?care for you?" asked Fe
dora In a low voice, looking away;
"That's precisely the point," said he,
pushing back his hat. "I want to find
out."
"Is she pretty?"
"Beautiful!" replied the professor,
with enthusiasm. "She lias the most
magnificent brown eyes in the world
and hair?how do they say In novels
like spun gold, that's it," ho concluded
impulsively, his eyes aglow.
Fedora's cerulean orbs were sudden
ly misty, and her dusky brown bead
was averted.
There was silence for a few mo
ments. After a little she leaned for
ward to pick a flower, her heart throb
bing violently, and the color faded
from her face. %
The professor drew a loug breath and
sighed. ""She doesn't give me any en
couragement," he ventured, regarding
her with a questioning, half wistful
look.
"Perhaps," said Fedora faintly, as if
to herself, "she cares for so me ono
else."
The professor stared at her in con
sternation.
"I never?thought?of-that." he said
slowly, dismay stealing into his tones,
as his eyes sought hers with an intense
look as though searching her inmost
soul.
The pause that followed was unbro
ken for some moments. Finally he"
spoke.
"I hope?you have not made a mis
take," he said, rising to go, "because
it meant so much to hie?everything."
lie was looking down upon her, and
there was something in his eyes she
had never seen there before.
"There is only one way?to find out,"
she said, speaking heroically, but with
a dreary little smile.
The professor's race brightened.
"Well?" said he, almost boldlng his
breath.
The girl did not Immediately reply.
Something seemed to clutch at her
throat. '
Presently she lifted her eyes?suspi
ciously bright?to his nnd said slowly,
her voice half tremulous:
'"Just tell her?In a straightforward,
manly way that you?love?her and

She dropped her eyes suddenly as she
encountered his look ? not easy to
evade.
There was an inaudible stillness. Fe
