Retelling a Joke.
A west side man heard a joke, new
to him, the other day, and the first
thing he did upon reaching home for
dinner was to tell it to his wife.
"Mary," he said, "heres a new joke
that's mighty good. One man says,
'The theater caught fire last night'
'Did they save anything?' the second
man asks. 'Yes,' says the first, 'they
carried out the programme.' Isn't that
a good one?" His wife said it was, and
next day she tried it on her grocer.
"Mr. Blank," she said, "here's a new
joke.for you. One man says, 'The tne
ater caught fire last night.' Another
asks, 'Did they save anything?' 'Yes,'
replies the first, 'they went on with the
programme and finished it' Isn't that
a fine joke?" The grocer said it was
excellent, but confidentially he ac

OUR NEW YORK LETTER.
BY H. W. FINLAYSON.
As communities are generally
interested in Andrew Carnegie
and his gifts, the following from
a Globe interview will be of in
terest and value:
"in my assistance to colleges,"
said Mr. Carnegie, when pressed
for a more detailed statement of
his position, "I am endeavoring
to apply the same business
principles which have enabled
me to put myself in a position
to do what I am doing. I have
no intention of encouraging
small colleges, nor large ones
for that matter, to expend be
yond their visible resources. It
would do them more harm than
good in most instances to piace
at their disposal considerable
sums of money to be employed
in any way which might gratify
the immediate views of their
- trustees and faculty.
I must be assured in the first
instance that there exists a ores
sing need which cannot be met
by the resources at the command
of the trustees. I must then be
assured that the enterprise is
one which has a reason for be
ing, which is managed wisely
and conservatively, and which
has a reasonable chance of be
coming self-sustaining. The
method of precedure is as fol
The president or a represen
tative of a college makes appli
cation to me for tinancial aid.
Such applicants receive a blank
form of application. I require
the facts to assure me that a gift
would be wisely bestowed and
The questions asked in each
blank are as follows: The name
of the colleges, its location, date
foundation, if denominational
the sect that supports and con
trols it, and if not, the nature of
its support the cost and value
of college: grounds, buildings,
and educational plant: the
amount of general endowment,
the annual running expenses,
and from what sources this
amount is derived, what library
facilities the college has, what
provision exists for maintaining
them, how much money has beet
spent for that purpose annually
during the past four years. and
in case the college has no library
building of its own, if there are
any permanent and secured
sources of income to secure its
maintainence and what amount
can be guaranteed for that pur
-pose by the college trustees in
case a library building should be
In addition to these questions
there are others calling for par
ticulars in regard to the town
library or other library in the
vicinity of the college, for the
number of stuidents -attending on
December 1st during each of the
last five years, whether the col
lege has a preparatory depart
ment, how many students are
doing regular college work as
distinguished from those who
are taking preparatory or spec
ial -cources, and calling for in
formation in regard to the gen
eral scope of the iustitution.,
"I am as ready to assist in the
establishment of libraries now as
ever, but the demand for them
is less active than formerly.
Most of the cities and large
towns are already supplied, and
the applications now received
ar oty from small communi
ties, whose requirements are not
very -large. The applications
now average only about one a
day, and this costs mneonly about
$20.000 a day. I do not consider
that enough to spend in the work
I have planned: hence my inter
est in colleges."
Asked is sectarian foundations
were eligible to his gifts, he re
plied: "No, not as. sectarian
foundations. As a matter of fact,
however, most of the colleges
which started as sectarian foun
dations have broadened their
basis voluntarily, and while still
sectarian in name, perhaps, ad
mit students of all creeds- and
impose no hard-and-fast condi.
tions. I do not object to a school
conducted under the patronage
of a denomination if it prospers
byvreasoti of such patronage. In
thecase of a school 'so strictly
guarded that it made the ac
ceptance of its tenets a condition
of matriculation, I am free to say
that it would not interest me."
