Last nights robbery of Mr. Frank lin was the first hold up which has oc curred.

Be DM Not Permit Clue Walk to Inter fere With His Athletics. , A former student of Yale tells tha following story , at the expense of President Porter: In coo of the class divisions was a young1 fellow active in athletics who found it difficult to blend proficiency in baseball with the forty pages of advance and' review which made up the normal day" lesson in Dr. Porter's bulky volume on "Human Intellect" Taking advantage of Dr. Porter's easygoing recitations, the young fel low hit on the fo'lowlng- device: He divided the forty pages into eight sections of five pajres each. For each section he prepared an answer, usually based on a augareative line or two, sometimes evolved purely from inner co&acfoenorm. ' -'- "Z "'",". ' - At jVc'rfation he rsimply Watched Dr.- Porter i'um ,the pages, basing his answer absolutely on the pnges turned. Prom pag;s fire to ten incant answer No 2, from pages twenty-five to thirty answer Na 6, and so- on, not the Slightest attention otherwise being i paia io me question. iDe young 1 oloneer ln osvcholoe-v. who mtti,l off the answer with all the flexibilitv of speech and. earnestness he could command, always met . a gracious smile from Dr. Porter, and found subsequently by this .audacity he had secured a stand in psychology among1 the first half-dozen in the class. Years after he met Dr. Porter and explained the trick and the result. The: president turned the thing prettily: "Mr. Blank," answered he, "if you got eight Ideas out of each forty pages ot my. 'Human Intellect.' you got so many more than most of youtj class, that you deserve your stand." DAGGETT'S SILVER. A Presentation Service Which Was Last for Twenty Tears. A cost famous tea set of silver, which 31,300, and was presented to John Daggett, now superintendent! of the San Francisco mint, in 1873. was placed so n after for safe-keeping in custody of a firm in that city; Thir teen 'years later Mr. Daggett went for his silver. The box was not to ha found. i Thp senior member of the firm ad mitted that he "remembered the chest as well as if he had screwed down the lid yisterday." "I J have the screw-driver yet," he added. ' Safes, cellars, lofts were ransacked, but no chest with a screwed lid was found. Then appeal was made to the coa.-ts. The case was shuttlecocked from tone to another for seven long year The other day the junior partner of the firm dns tea an old. unmarked box, which the traditions of the establish roent' said belonged to people by the name of Ober, who lived in Oakland It's been here twenty years or more, said lie; "111 see what there is in it. The lock was rusty and a mechanio was called in. Opened, the box re vealed Dageett's silver service, It was in the original box and packings. And several men had sworn in court that that lid was screwed down ia their presence. A i'tg Shower of Meteors.

McKinley for th presidency In 1896 is being extensively Agitated by the republican press of the country. The San Francisco Cbrouicle say that Tuesdays election was plain a repudiation of President Cleveland and his policy. Two trains on the Uock Island in the suberbs of Chicago collided yes , terday in which three people were ' killed and eleven injured. j B use's defeat for governor of Ohio has removed him as a possi' bility for the Democratic nomina tion for the, presidency in '96. The twoi assigned causes f r Democratic! losses, from that par ty's standpoint of view, are a dis s itisfactton 'among the agricultural elements and the apathy of disap pointed office seekers.
