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
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.

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.

The Rocky Ford Enterprise shows
the right spirit in the following:
Beyond any doubt the hardest fight 1
ever made in the legislature of Colo
rado has just rhached a final decis- 1
i 'n. 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.
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.
