PAGE TURKS STUDEflTS SHY AT STUDYING BOOKS A California Educator Greatly Deplores the Frivo lous Tendency. LIKES ENGLISH SYSTEM AMERICAN UNIVERSITY . STU DENTS CAN DO NEARLY EVERY THING, HE STATES, BUT WHAT THEY REALLY SHOULD. At Local Theaters San Francisco, March 4. Charles Allies Gay ley, professor of English language and literature In the Univer sity of California, and a pretty fair golf player, has "taken a fall," as he would not express it. out of a variety of persons and things connected with American universities, in a book just Issued under the title, "The Idols of Education." . Professor Gayley dedicates his "Se lected and Annotated Essays" to for mer President Angell, of the Univer sity of Michigan, an institution over which it is generally believed the pro fessor himself might now be the head if he had been so Inclined. Just a Few Diversions. The introductory pays its respects to "our young people" in the follow ing language: - "How many nights a week does a student spend in pursuits nonacade mic? How great a portion of his days? "What with so-called 'college activit ies," by which he must prove his alle giance to the university, and social functions, by which he must recreate his Jaded soul, no margin is left for the one and only college activity which is study. Class meetings, busi ness meetings, committee meetings, editorial meetings, football rallies, baseball rallies, vicarious athletics on the bleachers, garrulous athletics in dining room and parlor and on the porch, rehearsals of the glee club, re hearsals of the mandolin club and of the banjo, rehearsals for dramatics (a word to stand the hair on end), college dances and class banquets, fraternity dances and suppers; a run ning up and down in college politics, making tickets, pulling wires, adjust ing combinations, canvassing for votes canvassing the girls for votes, spending hours at sorority houses for votes talking, thinking rubbish about pseudo-civic honor, rubbish about girls what margin of leisure is left for the one activity of the college, which is study?" " ' Instructors' Bad English. Catching his breath afteri this ver bal rally Professor Gayley gayly tackl ed his own craft as follows: "Our Ph. D.'s are lamentably prone to error in the use ,of their own ton gue. Of the latter crop of instructors in universities some say: 'He don't, luckrative,' 'minerolJgy' confessing that 'they hadn't ought to'; others never fail,' they 'fall down'; they nev er win, they 'win out'; they never are at a loss, though frequently they are 'up against it'; when they lecture in plain clothes the outcome is dis course: when in a dinner jacket, an Address " There were other jabs at education as it is conducted in this country to day and coupled with them was a etrong tribute to the system in force in Europe, especially at Oxford and Cambridge. At the Murray. The patrons of the Murray .theater will be interested in knowing that the headliner this week comes from the! Grand at Indianapolis, the Majestic and the Haymarket in Chicago and next week will play Kansas City, play ing Orpheum time until they reach the coast. Miss Butler in her first ap pearance, Monday made a decidedly fa vorable impression upon her audiences and tnere is no doubt that packed hous es will greet her and the quartette at every performance. The Legerts, hand balancers and gymnasts are at tracting attention by their marvellous feats, some of which are certainly thrilling. Reif, Clayton and Reiff, in singing and dancing, are sure to please all. Lynn, the royal rube, put on an act of talking, singing and dancing, which adds variety to the bill. The motion pictures complete the big bill which is certainly popular as well. It seems as though the day of the horse for certain purposes is coming back. After being almost ostracized for some four or five years, horses are again being used for driving in the park and for afternoon calling. The editor of the London Horse World as cribes the reastion to the fact that la dies are getting tired of concealing their pretty faces and dresses In auto mobile toggery, while the automobile is no longer the exclusive luxury it used to be. troubles than a solution of common salt in plain water the cheapest reme dy on? can find. Many persons give their eyes a daily bath of cold salt water, with satisfactory results. "The Traveling Salesman" The greatest comedy success of the century, "The Traveling Salesman," by James Forbes, author of "The Chorus Lady," will be seen at the Gennett to morrow afternoon and night. This an nouncement should arouse more than passing interest among the theatergo ers of this city, as "The Traveling Salesman" has been heralded for months as the greatest laugh-provok- er ever seen. ine piay aeais wun certain instances in the life of the "drummer" on the road, and has the endorsement of the large traveling men's organizations, who have en dorsed it in the highest terms, which bespeaks for Mr. Forbes comedy a truthful exposition of the life of the drummer away from home. A cast of unusual excellence has been engaged by Henry B. Harris, who is managing this production. Among the prominent members of the compa ny are Austin Webb, Rosalind Cogh lan, Florence Hackett, Harriet Sheldon, Dan Baker, Joseph Sullivan, Gideon Burton, Jack L. Newton, Scott Siggins, Geo. M. DeVere, George Smithfield, John Von Statten, and those two clever child actors, Janet Hackett and Master Albert Hackett.

Leroy Haw ley, a farmer living here, has brought suit against his father-in-law and mother-in-law, B. F. Snyder and wife, charging them with alienation of his wife's affections, and asks $50,000 damages. Hawley and wife were married 15 months ago. Hawley alleges that aft er a visit to her parents' home his wife refused to leave at the instigation of her parents. The Snyders are members of one of the oldest and wealthiest families in this count-. His Name Fitted Him. Not very Ions; ago a wealthy Wash' Sngton gentleman had a new valet whoa name was somewhat of a puz sle to him. The Initials were V. D. C. Cheney, and his employer wondered at times what Cheney's name could be. One morning he inquired. "It's like thto. sir," replied the valet. who happened to be an Englishman. "My mother dearly loved to read nov els when she was young, and some of the names stuck In her memory. One was valet de chambre. She never knew just exactly what it meant, but the French sounded well, and she bad nie christened that. It fits me, don't you think so, sir?" National Maga sine. To keep the rivers of the country free from snags and other impedi ments to navigation, the government maintains a fleet of thirty steamboats and spends $500,000 a year. Few persons understand the thera peutic value of salt. A little salt in one's drinking water is "good medi cine." Salt applications to the skin are wonderfully soothing and whole some.

Many persons are subj?ct to cpells of indigestion, or a full feeling- of dis comfort, after eating an extraordinary large meal or goraething particularly hard to digrest.
