If it wero not beneath his dignity, George Colby Chase could doubtless yell B-a-t-o-K, rah rah rah I Boom-a-laka, boom-a-laka, boom. Bates, boom!" as loud as the freshest freshman, but as he was recently Inaugurated as president of Bates college he probably allows the stu dents to look after the college yell. Presi dent Chase waa born In Unity, Me., March 15, 1841. One of his ancestors signed the Declaration of Independence, and ho be longs to the same line of Chases as the late Salmon P. Chase, chief Justice ofthc Unit ed States supreme court. Poor health and poverty stood in the way of the thorough education he desired, but his ambition swept awuy all obstacles, and he was graduated at the head of his class in 1S6S. ITe then entered tho divini ty school at Bates nd became a tutor in tho college. ' In 1371 he was elected pro- I RESIDENT CiEOKGE COLnr CHAFE. fesscr of F.ngllh llteraturo and rhetoric, and after a ywir spent In the graduate de partment at Harvard he entered upon the discharge of hi dutle.

This was tho first polit ical Kpeech made to the eolonnl jn-oplo in Carrurd county and t reated great excite ment. The f peaker wus hoon nominated by the Republicans for county Judge and made such a vigorous canvass that he overcame a largo Democratic majority by 64 votes. As Judge, he administered the laws with Impartial severity, and at tho end of his four years' term was nominated for common wealth's attorney of the Klghth judicial dUtrlct and overcame nvery large majority.

A HamUotne Edifice Now Ilffng lluilt In the Heart of the Eternal City. A P rotes taiK church in Borne, tho head quarters of tho world's Catholicism, seems somewhat of an anomaly, but nevertheless puch a structure Is now being built in the very heart of tho Eternal City. It is to be tho headquarters of the Italian mission of the Methodist Episcopal church, and Hev. Dr. William Burt, iresiding elder of tho Italian conference, is now in this coun try endeavoring to raise tho $50,000 nec essary for the proper completion of the structure Ground for tho building was broken in July, 18P3, and in excavating for tho foundation tho workmen unearthed TOE KEW METHODIST ITALIAN M1SSIOX. many interesting relics of ancient Rome. About ten feet below tho surface they came upon the walls of on old church -and mon astery of tho third or fourth century. . The walls were of Roman brick and pozzula no cement. Below the walls of the old church were found evidences that a heathen temple had stood upon tho spot and had been used for foundation purposes by the workmen who bullf the church and monastery. The flrt foundation etono of the new Methodist structure was laid in September, 1693, and in May, 1&94, the cornerstone was formally placed in position by Bishop John P. Newman of Omaha. .The site is a corner lot, opposite the Italian war de partment and only three minutes' - walk from the royal palace It is also on the line between the old and tho new Rome, a locality considered central and com manding. The erection of this mission is by no means the first work of tho Methodists in Italy. They already have 29 organized churches in the kingdom, and a dozen othor places are regularly visited by Meth odist ministers. Tho new building when completed will Ik an imposing structure and will furnish adequate accommoda tions for tho work of tho church in Rome. The building is already well under way, but considerable money roust be raised be fore the work of construction can be push ed to completion. A Lumlooui Tree. A strange trco grows In Nevada that is called by the superstitious Indians the witch tree. It grows to a height of six or seven feet, .and its trunk at tho base is about three time the slzo of an ordinary man's wrist. Tho wonderful characteristic of the tree is its luminosity, which is so great that on the darkest night it can be seen plainly at least a mllo away. A per son standing near could read the llnot pTint by its light. Its foliage is extreme ly rank, and its leaves resomblo tho bay tree in shape, size and color. The lumi nous property is duo to a gummy sub stances which can be transferred to tho hand by rubbing together with its phosphores cent light, while the light on tho leaf dis appears. The lumlnoblty is thought to lr due to u xaraRlc growth. The Indians will never approach it, even In daylight, with such superstitious awe do thry re gard Its mysterious light. Lire With Low Iule. It U generally supposed that when a man's heart pulsations go down to 40 a minute death will follow unless restora tives are ndmini-tered. There Is a man In Paris, however, whose puliation are as low as 1 a minute, although to all ai jxarancts he Is well and strong. A irateful I'tiyoirian. A curious will wat left by a physielnn rf (ilasgow who died tho other day. He bequeathed his entire fortune to his wife eut of gratitude for the fact that she had left him after a marring" of thre months and sine then had allowed him peace and quiet.
