which all the moral

was revealed when the body of Clar

graduating class Gish was the last.

sought to escape the penalty of his
rash participation in the pact, for he
loved life and wanted to live. But the
memory of the passing of his class
mates obsessed him, his mind broke
sud he kept the pact to escape further
mental torture.
Intimate friends of the young man
knew of the suicide agreement, for
Gish had confided to them ids fenr
that he would not he able to keep his
faith with his comrades and had been
buoyed up by his friends' attempts to
relieve his mind. He had promised
them that he would forgot the past.
Each student in Gish's class had
learned a trade and had gone from the
school to more or less success. As
each took his life, some by shooting,
some by poison and some by the
noose, the word was sent to those who
remained. They kept in touch with
each other until only Gish survived.
The eighth member of the class shot
himself two years ago.
Gish had learned piano tuning. He
lived with his father on a ranch. He
left with his friends a record of the
graduation class and its tragedies,
with the request that they be kept in
confidence until a certain length of
time after his death.
London.— William Muller is
wondering just why some peo
ple are so rude. He is doing his
wondering in the Old Bailey.
William attempted to murder a
pretty young woman clerk, but
the young woman seemed to be
obdurate—she didn't wish to be
murdered. There are many
ways to pass out. and the girl
thought she had a privilege of
being consulted in the matter.
When Mr. Millier was arraigned
he was just a little the worse
for wear. When given the op
portunity to say something, he
broke out with : "I apologize."
The young woman refused to
consider it.

scholars In the world."
"Why should they be?" squealed
"They shouldn't," said Miss Ham.
"But you are forever pretending you
are bright and clever—that's the part
that is foolish."
"You stole my word," squealed
"What word?" asked Miss Ham. and
looked about ho; - as if she had stolen
some food and not a word and was try
ing to see what she had done with it!
"In the very first place of all I said.
'It's so foolisti.' That was when I
joined you today."
"To he sure you did. Pinky," said
Grandfather Porky. "Miss Ham is
talking too much. Tell us what is fool
ish. I love foolish things."
"I don't love this," said Pinky.
"Hurry and tell us what it is,"
squealed Brother Bacon.
Pinky gave a grunt, squealed twice
and then began : "My mother," he said,
"does not want me in the pen. She
says I am not to go home for four
weeks. I am to visit my different pig
cousins, but I am not to go home."
"Why not?" they all squealed in sur
"Because I have some new brothers
and sisters and my mother thinks so
much of them now that she can't pay
any attention to me. It's absurd, too,
because I wouldn't hurt them.
"She happens to think a great deal
of them herself though she might have

do that."
"True," said Miss Ilam, "I can easily
understand it. I might even be tempted
myself. It shows how much we appre
elate our own families when we are
willing to eat them up. You don't
show good taste. Pinky."
"Cruel, cruel pigs," said Brother Ba
con. Why I wouldn't think of doing
such a thing, and to think that the
mother pigs will eat up tiieir own
young. It's a horrible thought."
"Not at all." said Miss Ham once
more - "It simply shows we think
highly of pigs—even of our own, and
even in the form of a meal. It is (he
true spirit of a pig, and a mother who
will eat her young is a mother after mv
own pig heart."
"We are more tender-hearted," said
Pinky, "but I am thankful to say that
my mother didn't eat up her children, j
She simply asked me to slay away as i

It Is true that the one-time honored

wait—what takes its place? Sometimes
nothing. 1'oor modern child!
Little Willie, you see. Is taught that
"ma'am" is decidedly bail form, don't
you know, a mode of address only to
be used by servants, indeed, and so
his youthship comes out with an
abrupt "No" or a brief "Yes," to old
ladies and playmates alike, an ex

The really correct thing for Willie
to he taught is that the name or rela
tionship of the person addressed must
be given In place of that socially os
traeized "ma'am." He must say "Yes,
mother," or "no, father" (if he has
been taught net to use "sir), or "No,

may be.
