Spaelal to the Denver i 1’iTTsBuiUi, March 25.—There is a turmoil up at Me&dville among the students and facilty of Allegheny College, where the sexes meet for in struction and where Cupid appears to hold a sway which the college pio fessor* are endeavoring to overthrow, j There arc about 200 male students in i the college, while Huling’s Ilall, its j adjunct, contains fitly lady students; j and thus, with four m iles to one fe-j | male, the girls are having a picnic. With her ratio of eight masculine! eyes looking into her orbs each girl feels exalted, and at the holiday va cation an unusual number of both •exes found it inconvenient to visit their homes. A desire for unusual dilligence tn study was assigned as the reason and the professors were ♦dated at this display of a desire to acquire knowledge. One of the girls, when questioned as to what particu lar branch had caused this decision on her part demurely replied that it was “art,” and an investigation show ed that the art work was shared in i by the young gentlemen who could | be found, each engaged with a miss, “making pictures in each other’s eye*.” This lore-making has gone on all: winter, to the delight of the girls and the annoyance of the professors until it was decided to stop it, a decision \ which appears a*, yet to carry no ; force with if. The time chosen for the issuance of this ukase was at the chapel ser vices and I*rofes»or Williams an nounced that the college must not be turned into a matrimonial bureau and that the business of making mashes and squeezing willing hands <>n the campus must cease. He fur ther warned them that it would be , found exceedingly unhealthy to oon ' linue the practice of sitting at night upon the steps of Haling Hall and breathing soft nosense into each oth ers ears, and all students must pay close attention to the course of study , laid down by the college and less to rehearsing scenes from “Romeo and Juliet” and the “Lady of Lyons.” The young ladies looked down and blushed as he uttered these words, i but after they had escaped his sur ; veillanee they held a caucus. There their iudiguation found vent and their plans were formulated. On the next morning at the hour for chapel exercises fifty misses with their heads reverently bowed and clad as nuns marched into the chapel in slow pro cession ami seated themselves. As they did this there was a mo ment of silence and the 200 boys broke into a series of wild jyells oft i glee, while the professors struck an attitude of holy horror. Order was at last restored and j i then Professor Williams berated the i I boys in scathing language for their ! unseemly conduct in a place of wor ship, Ho declared that they acted as though they thought the place was no better than a beer garden, and 1 a repetition of it would call for se ' verc censure, if not expulsion. While this talk was in progress not a girl moved a muscle. Every head was bowed, hut tjieir burning cheeks showed that it was only with difficulty that their feelings were re i strained. Outside of the college the •affair has furnished a lively topic for discussion, but the people sympathize with the young people and the laugh is on the professors. Chief Justice Fuller can console himself w ith the thought that he has seven unmarried daughters remain ing, and that he was not called upon to furnish a wedding trousseau to > the one that fled. On this ground lie might be willing to see all the others elffpc likewise, for a modern trous seau for a girl in society costs more than a year’s salary as Chief Justice. —New York Daily Graphic Mr Exum Saint, Ethel and Edti i took their departure for Denver Tues day niorning.—Cbiviofton Chief, ROCK ISLAND AHEAD. Til© I-iatest Tiling in Tour ist, Sleeping Oars. The Rock Inland has inaugurated ! a new feature, which promises to cre ate consulerable interest hi railway improvement, it being a free tourist I car service, with nearly all the con veniences of the palace car, includ ing colored porter in attendance, tine ; hair mattresses, pillows, blankets, ! B <>ap, etc. When made up for the 1 night, the fourteen sections aro par titioned off with sliding patinels, and (curtained with heavy damask draper ies. Tables, attachable to the sides | °f the interior, are provided for each | section. The cars are heated by steam, the aisles carpeted, and eus pidors for the cleanliness of the cars, are added. The duties of the porter accompanying each.car will be simi lar to those of the palace car service —to look after the wants of the pas senger ai d see that the car is kepi perfectly clean. In one end is the ladies’ lavatory, and in the other, one for gentlemen, which are as nicelv ' | appointed and furnished as the most , fastidious would desire. The inten ' tion of the Chicago, Kansas' d; Ne braska i* to furnish these cars free of charge to tourist or excursion par ties when the number of persons is sufficiently large to justify the use of a ear or cars. \\ ilh such accommo- - d.-itions, and w ithout change, there is no further necessity of a western tour without sleeping accommodations. iioi is it necessary to make suck a trip expensive. It is a g*-eat induce merit for parties, clubs, <*r any con siderable number of persons contem plating a trip to the Kooky Moun tains, for instance. And, too, the Denver & Rio Grande has adopted the same scheme, and as the Rock Island connects with this route in Colorado, the free tourist car system will no doubt be generelly adopted by those in Merita h of the pleasure and health giving regions of our con tinent. —Kansas City Journal.

Everything: is “inauguration” here. I inaugurated last night the custom I of sleeping in the hotel elevator. It !' s 21 new thing with ine. I have slept I before all the crowned heads of En j rope. Also in the park, but it is dif | ferent from any of those. I have I also slept in a folding bed in the ; gloaming and in a railroad accident but the hotel elevator is more sur- prising than any of these. This morning ray wish bone stuck i out through the hack of my overcot. A fat man. who first thought of Gen. Harrison as a candidate and who never said anything else all his life, \ sat down on me, and, drawing a deep sigh, remained sitting *on me till I woke up and inserted my scarf-pin ‘ in the north east corner of his soul, i • I** then arose and said a sudden < thought had just occurred to him. l i DENVER EXCURSION.

The eontest between lioekv 1 Ford and La Junta for county seat ‘ was indeed very interesting and very 1 exciting. Every trick of parliament ary law was sprung to make a point, i La Junta bagged the game by one » vote. While, of course, this does 1 not exactly please Rocky Ford, yet : her people are too noble, too gener- ’ ons to “carry the war into Egypt.” W itli us, we gracefully accept the inevitable and accept La Junta as our seat of government, hoping that all daggers Hung during the fight will he forgotten and that we can unite in the upbuilding of our coun ty. No one can blame Rocky Ford and no one can hlame La Junta for their efforts in behalf of their respec tive towns. It stands us all in hand to lay aside every prejudice, and work for the best good of all. We i feel safe in saying that the people of Rocky Ford and the whole west end will work in harmony with La Junta, if her people will as gracefully’ ac : oept their victory’, as we have accept ed our defeat. If this is done and everything connected with the close I contest is forgotten, then there will be no cause for any jealousness to exist between the two places. We sincerely hope, that for the general good of all, no mud slinging will be indulged m. I stood on the bridge at midnight as drunk as a sun-of-a-gun, two moons rose over the city, when there ought to have been hut one. I could sec their bright reflection, in the wa ' ters under me, and I expressed a feel ing of wonder and great ouriosty. If I only one had been there, I would not have been in doubt. But what two moons were doing, I could not make j out. The tide was slowly ebbing, I i could hear tho waters roll, as I stood iin the wavering shadows, to hide from the night patrol. llow often, 1 oh. how often, in tho days of auld lang syne I tried to cross at midnight and got lost every’ time. But to j night I was hot and wrostless, and , ( my mind was full of care, for the walk that lay before me, seemed 1 , greater than I could bear. I had no : latch key with me, and looked would bo tho door, and I’d have to sit in ‘ the doorway, in agony and fear, till ! a voice said from tho window “did [the lodge hold late my dear?” So to night I stool there dreaming, and .vutching the wres:less tide, till a ’ , cop ooine with a wagon an 1 invited | me to take a rido.-^Ex.

Kate Field has taken strong ground against prohibition. One of her main arguments is that there is lees drunk enness in wine-drinking countries than in those where wine is not com monly drunk. There is doubtless much truth in what she says on this point. France is a wine-drinking country, but drunkenness is not a national vice. In Europe drunken ness is chiefly found in the more northern countries, like Scandinavia, Scotland and England, where alco holic liquors are drunk rather than wine. It would he far better to sub stitute light beverages like wine and beer for whisky and brandy'. This can be done only by a slow process in which the customs of thp people aio changed. It has been plished to a large degree in Califor nia already. There wine is cheap, and the people drink a great deal of It. —Denver Republican. This is the time of year wT en sum mer trips to Europe are usually plann ed. Americans go across the ocean by thousands who have only a mea gre knowledge of their own country. There are a dozen portions of tho United States which aro as well worth seeing with American eyes as anything in Europe. The natural scenery on this side of the ocean is far superior to anything abroad. A trip to England, or I tally, or France, or Switzerland, or Norway, is all very well, but Americans should find much more to interest them in a trip to California, or Tellowstone Park, or the ruined cities of Arizona, or the wonders of Colorado, or the great latces and Niagara. It is to be hoped that many American trips are now being planned by pleasure seekers of this country. A knowledge of Eu ropean countries is of secondary im portance to a knowledge of our own. —American. The men of wealth, the men who control those great corporations—- these great mills-give millions away in ostentatious charity. They' send missionaries to foreign lands. They | endow schools and universities and | allow the men who earned the sur j plus to die in want. I believe in no charity that is founded on robbery. I have no admiration for generous highwaymen or extravagant pirates. At the foundation of charity let there ho justice. Ret these men whom others have made wealthy give some thing to tho workmen—something to thoso who created their fortunes. This would be one step in the right direction, I)o not let it be regarded as chaiity—let it be regarded as jus. ! lice.-—liob’t. J. Ingersoll.
