-71 vent narrowness In their training. Al
i ready a number of students are ar
i ranging to take up this work next
[ fall, and the prospects are very bright
, for a large freshmen class,
i The course in agriculture which is
I now offered is also broad In its na
, i ture. It will be of great advantage to
j 1 the young people who desire to secure
j an agricultural training in a reliable
* co-educational institution. As the de
mand for this work Increases additlon
’ | al equipment will be purchased which
, will make the work of this course both
* scientific and practical.
Another addition in which many are
interested, is the new normal course,
which is so arranged to specially pre
j pare students for public school teach
-1 ing. As far as possible, this course is
'! made to comply with the demand in
Pennsylvania and Maryland. In ad
* dition to a liberal amount of theoreti
-1 cal training, each graduate will be
required to spend considerable time
in actual teaching under the direct
I supervision of a critic teacher.

FUNNY FINANCIER.
Proposes New Syndicate for Western
Maryland Company.
A. Parlett Lloyd discloses an im
portant piece of railroad news in the
following statement:
“It occurs to me that it is about
time to indorse a new combination for
the purchase of the Western Maryland
Railroad. I suggest the E. Z. Foolyew
Syndicate, of New York and San Fran
cisco. This company has capital stock
of $200,000,000 (of which $8 has been
paid in) and a floating surplus of 7
cents. It is composed of promoters,
lobbyists and heavy promisers. The
prospectus it is about to issue is at
tractive, and it cannot fail to rally to
' its support our leading citizens. It
has not yet decided whether to make
the Western Maryland a connecting
link and through trunk line with the
Great Northern, the Canadian Pacific,
the Louisville and Nashville, or to run
it South over the tracks of the An
, napolis Short Line, connecting it by
the Isthmus of Panama with the Peru
Central and the Brazilian system
, through to Patagonia.
“I understand for a paltry consider
ation of $1,500,000 the syndicate will
verbally promise to make Baltimore
the greatest city on earth, crush the
i Pennsylvania Railroad, annihilate the
Baltimore and Ohio and build a mag
nificent Union Station of solid gold
s bricks. It will also promise to so re
i duce the city tax rate that instead of
paying money to the Collector after
\ 1809 it will pay former taxpayers in
• terest on amounts hitherto paid.
“How could we afford to stand back,
, when promises are so fairer than the
i daily work of the two great railroads
we already have? Think of tidewater
> —and fortunate too it was tied, or the
old syndicate would have used it all in
. its stock; think of direct connection,
f say, with Bering Sea or the Straits of
■ Magellan, whichever we want; think
of solid icebergs coming in over the
: Western Maryland for our citizens in
summer, while New York remains in
1 the clutches of the Ice Trust; think
-of the ruined coal barons of Pennsyl
vania when they wake up some fine
morning to find our transcontinental,
North-South-Central-All-America rail
. road bringing us black diamonds from
the Rockies and the Andes at trifling
, expense! Who can hesitate?”
Editorial Repartee.
i A Western weekly prints the follow
j ing:
“Paterfamilias asks: ‘How can 1
. get an article into your esteemed
- paper?’ It all depends on the article
. you want to get into our paper,
1 Pater. If it is small In bulk, like a
1 hair-brush or a tea-caddy spread the
paper out upon the floor, and, placing
5 the article carefully in the centre,
i neatly fold the edges over it and tie
with a string. This will keep the ar
t tide from slipping out. If,, on the
other hand, the article Is an English
t bathtub or a clothehorse, you will
, find it more suited to one of the New
York Sunday papers.”
DEATH’S HARVEST.
Well Known Residents And Others
Who Have Passed Away.
Wood.
Mrs. Isabella Wood, who died in
I Baltimore last week at the ripe old
i age of 87 years, was well and favor
ably known in this city, she and her
! family having resided here for a num
i ber of years in the residence adjoining
■ the Farmers and Mechanics’ National
Bank and later in the dwelling occu
pied by the late Dr. Franklin.
Mrs. Wood was the daughter of
Thomas Sewell, a prominent Balti
morean, who conducted a large tan
-1 nery for many years on Pennsylvania
avenue, Baltimore. The family were
prominent in society here, as in
Baltimore. The oldest daughter, Net
tie who died several years ago, was
1 the wife of C. Faris Pitt, a prominent
Baltimorean and conspicuous as a
connoisseur in art and a dealer in
bric-a-brac. Her many friends will
learn with regret of her death.
Babylon.
Mrs. John Babylon died suddenly last
s Tuesday at her residence on North
l Calvert street, Baltimore, of heart
* trouble. She was the daughter of Mrs.
1 Isabella Wood, who died a few days
ago in Baltimore. She had been com
i plaining for some time of heart trouble
and it is supposed that the worry
and sorrow consequent upon the death
■ of her mother hastened the end.
1 Mrs. Babylon when living in West
’ minster as Miss Annie Wood married
! John Babylon, who was at the time
paying teller in the Farmers and Me
' chanics’ National Bank. Mr. Babylon
* died several years ago.
Oursler.
After an illness of about five weeks
, of typhoid fever, Jesse Erie, son of
! Tobias and Albretta E Oursler, died
at his home, Harford avenue, Balti
. more, May 28, in his 19th year.
A devoted father, a loving mother,
three affectionate sisters and a fond
brother watched over him, while a
trained nurse and three physicians
did all that human skill could do for
him, yet the dread scourge, typhoid
fever, made him its victim. Erie was
a fine boy, beloved by a large circle of
friends, who sincerely mourn his early
death. Truly can it be said of him,
“Blessed are the dead who die in the
Lord.”

S COLLEGE BRED WOMEN.
j Higher Education Does Not Unfit
Them for Domestic Life.
) In a recent number of a popular
[ magazine there is a brief exposition
I by the heads of seven American col
’ leges, devoted exclusively to the high
; er education of women, of the ideals
* aimed at by the woman colleges and
1 concerning the life mission of the col
lege-bred woman. There is not a
7 very great diversity of view among
1 the seven distinguished educators in
1 the setting forth of the results broad
ly aimed at in the higher education
; of women. Service to her generation,
* to her race—that, in a nutshell, is the
' ideal for their graduates at which the
i women’s colleges are aiming. This
5 thought of service and of a highly
" trained capacity for service is express
-1 ed in practically every one of the
* papers contributed under the head
-1 ing of “What Kinds of Young Women
r Our Leading American Colleges Are
‘ Aiming to Produce.”
The sweet girl graduate is a finish
’ ed product, but not a society orna
s ment; not simply and merely for dec
-3 orative purposes. She has been train
r ed to work. One president of a cele
-5 brated New England institution de
-1 dares “the colleges have no sym
’ pathy with the view that it is undig
' nified to work; rather, they believe
1 that it is beneath the dignity of a
5 human being not to work.” The head
1 of another institution that is main
-1 taining a high level in the education
1 of women believes that the higher ed
‘ cation for women “is substituting for
B the weak and vain ambitions of what
> is called society ambitions worthy of
spiritual and intellectual womanhood.”
I And another distiqguished college
=> president expresses the view that “for
the ideally trained woman service to
others is an essential condition of her
life and growth. Contact with noble
minds through study of books and
- through personal association will make
her eager to throw herself into the
I great struggle of humanity. Snob
-1 bishness, clannishness and self-seek
e ing have no place where truth reigns.”
•, Not one of the college presidents
i concurs in that view which has at
e times been given expression, that a
I college training unfits women for do
i, mestic life —for being wives, mothers
b and the superintendents of homes. In
- answering the question, “What kind
b of a woman should the college pro
i duce?” the head of a Massachusetts
1 woman’s college replies: “Women

lie schools, who looks well to the
ways of her household and yet is a
most valued and efficient public ser- 1
i ' vant.” The suggestion of another of
1 | the commentators upon the college
bred woman’s mission is that “the col
! lege woman learns to be adaptable, to
: work with definiteness and system, i
! to think quickly and clearly, and to ;
judge dispassionately—qualities quite |
as desirable in the home as in the
1 study or the classroom.” And another
declares that “the home, the church
• and society need women who can think
i who love the truth, who are cour- I
. ; ageous, who are public-spirited, effic
. i lent, eager for service, and are, with
; al, sincere, gentle, sympathetic and
I womanly.”
No, the sweet girl graduate is not
l merely a finished art work, however
; much she may look to be a thing per
i feet and completed when viewed
■ across the footlights as she appears I
i in her graduating glory. Her com- j
, mencement day marks a commence
s ment in her life mission; and her life 1
> mission is not by any means, accord
i ing to those who should be well quali
r fled to speak for her, to be “the but
■ terfly along the road.”

Bisks Death for Science.
[ * In the hope of discovering a pre
' ventive and cure for tuberculosis
Frank Werritt, of New York city, who,
about two weeks ago, volunteered to
surrender his body in the interest of
humanity and medical science, has
permitted a physician to inoculate his
system with the germs of the dread
disease. An examination made show
ed that the scourge has already made
[ considerable progress since the inocu- i
' lation, one week ago.
j 1 Merritt, who is of middle age, was
_ at one time a prosperous bookbinder
" in a Western State. According to his
story, his wife and a promising son
] died victims of tuberculosis. Their
, : loss prayed on his mind to such an
, extent that he failed in business and
, became a wanderer. Two weeks ago
, he applied to the Salvation Army
1 headquarters in New York city for
' lodging and was sent to the Salvation
. Army Hotel in Chatham Square. It i
; was there that he announced his will
; ingness to die if his death might aid
‘ In combating the spread of consump
' tion.
At Hartford City, Ind., Henry God-
dard found $250 in notes in a shoe that |
5 was sent to him to be repaired. The j
t owner of the shoe, Mrs. James Park- ‘
i er, distrusting banks, had put the
. money in the shoe and forgotten all
j about it.

Taxicabs in London.
Consul General Robert J. Wynne re
ports that taxicabs have become such
popular street vehicles in London
that the demand for them is much
greater than the supply. He adds:
“The taxicabs are used by all classes
I of people, day and night, at the uni
form rate of 16 cents a mile, and they
! present a most attractive appearance
iin chocolate, blue, yellow, red and
green hues, with chauffeurs in the
brightest and smartest liveries.
“Although scarcely a year has pass
ed since these swift-moving electric
and petrol carriages appeared, the
! capital already Invested in London
taxicabs is $10,000,000. There are
758 taxicabs on the streets, 2600 taxi
cabs on order, 17000 licensed drivers,
;an average of 55 certificates granted
each week. There are eight London
taxicab companies, their average day s
’ takings of a taxicab being $11.20. The
average cost of a London taxicab is
$1703, and its average takings are
about S7B a week.
“Some chauffeurs already are buy
ing their own taxicabs on the install
ment plan, and the picturesque ban
■ som Is disappearing gradually,
the old-fashioned horse ’bus, which
practically has been crowded aside
by the motor omnibus.”
