Nicholson of Wes- leyan university, who has been investi gating college athletic administrations, rinds among other things that ot loi colleges reidvinr to questions i- en force the one-vear-residence rule in athletics for students coming from other colleges, four enforce it for the first half year and i do not enforce it at all. Among the larger colleges which do not enforce the rule are Trinitv, Col lege of the City of New York, Lehigh, Svvarthtnore, I nion. Rochester ami most of the Southern institutions. Fiftv- nine permit graduate students to play and 91 do not, and 58 permit the stu dents of the professional schools while 43 do not. Only 127 absolutely prohibit freshmen from competing on the 'varsity team, and among them are Harvard, Yale, Cornell, Syracuse and the "Big Nine" colleges of the Western conference. Twelve bar freshmen for the first half year, among them being Amherst, Wes ley an and Williams, and 108 allow them to take part, leaders among them being Brown, Trinity, Tufts, Vermont, Colgate, College of the City of New York, Columbia, Lehigh, New York university, Pennsylvania State, Kut gers, Stevens. Swarthmore, I'nion, Pennsylvania, Rochester and practically all the Southern colleges. Columbia and Pennsylvania, however, bar fresh men from their 'varsity crews. One of the interesting questions was "How strictly are you able to enforce the training rules, e. g.', as regards smoking and drinking?" and all man ner of vague reports were handed in. Fifteen colleges reported that the rules were enforced absolutely, ?A strictly, 17 fairly, 4 not very well, 2 as much as possible, 2 cannot enforce them, 1 not as strictly as it wished, and 1 did not know. Twelve reported that they succeeded in enforcing the rule against drinking, but were doubtful about the rule against smoking, and one reported that the rule requiring the students to go to bed early was the hardest to enforce. BASEBALL NOTES. Maurice Kennedv, who has plaved the the outfield with North Adams field and Haverhill, is a holdout New Bedford team. Pittsfield failed to raise $4000 which was to have been the price of the baseball plant there but the owner has decided to take what he could get. This is only a matter of some $2700, but in spite of the difficulty in raising money and the fact that the inde pendent ehdyTittsfield has maintained for some, years has never paid, the fans there believe they can swing a Connecticut league team.

Byrne, the well-known bailor, left Sunday for Washington, to be present at the inaugural ceremonies. Mr. Byrne is just' now strongly in the limelight, be cause of holding the position of secre tary of the Vermont State Democratic committee. Practically the first sleighing of the sea son has been enjoyed this week, beginning Sundav. A small snowstorm, loiiowccl iy rain and sleet, formed two or three indies of almost solid ice in the highways but a small amount of warm weather would quickly destroy it. Edward G. Osgood. I'oiuieilv a well- known citizen of Bellows Falls, has recent ly been appointed deacon of the First Con gregational church of Nashua. N. II. Col. Osgood is now devoting his entire time to the secretaryship of the loard of trade for that city, having extensive and pleas ant offices for that purpose. Louis 1). Rowrtnd. of the Times loeal staff, who came here a month ago from Brattleoro, begins housekeeping this week in the dwelling of Mrs. L. Gates Hadlev on South street. He is particularly fortu nate in being able to secure as pleasant quarters in Bellows Falls, as tenements of that kind are usually scarce. The Congregational society is making arrangements for the erect ivn in the imme diate future, of a well-equipped modern Sunday school and parish house, immedi eijual to the emergency, and by buildim: opening from the auditorium and base ment. Three different impoitant contribu tions have been received during the last week, trustees for the holding of these have been chosen anil a committee ap pointed for investigating and reporting up on ians for the building. Rev. .J. W. Chesboro. the new pastor of the Baptist church, reached here last Tues- lay from Randolph, having driven his team from that place. His hou-ehold goods came at about the same time, and when Ins family reached here on Sa urday. he was well installed in the parsonage, ami occupied his pulpit the first time as pastor on Sunday morning. Mr. Chesboro as sumes the pastorate left vacant three months ago bv the resignation of Rev. 'Tolm Ward Moore.

During the severe sleet storm of Thurs- lay night, the town clock in the tower of the opera house building stopped between 11 and 12. When Janitor Fred H. Hob- son came to me molding in tlie morning, and looked about to see what the trouble was with the usually reliable timepiece he found that the rain and sleet had froz en against the north face of the clock to uch an extent that the ice had built out from the dial until it reached the hands and it had to stop. It still being cold when ur. nooson matte ins examination, it was quite a problem how to start it. because it was impossible to reach the ice on the outside of the tower. He was. however, equal to the emergency. .m tiy building a fire on the inside of the tower, near to the face of the clock, he soon had the ice off so the clock could be started.

William Cullen Bryant. justices, university professors, lawyers. literati, financiers and others, who com prise the membership of the club felt that he was the one man livins? best ipialified to speak on this subject, from the scientific, philosophic, and broadly practical. modern businesslike stand points. For Mr. Vail was born with special iu.tlilit ations. His father, Davis H. Vail, was a friend of Samuel t B. Morse, inventor of the telegraph; and his uncle, Alfred Vail, wan :i partner and financial backer of that Kreat bene factor of mankind. And Theodore N. Vail, himself, is no less important as a pioneer in the development of the. sci ence of intercommunication, for he formed a friendship and alliance with Alexander Graham Belt in the days of the early stnis;les of the inventor of the telephone, and it is largely due to liis missionary work in tlie ""s that the telephone s stems of the country grew until they form the gigantic enterprise of today. There has been mechanical genius in n-arl e ery generation of Vail s family fron . the founder of the American brauvfi. old John Vail, the Quaker oreacher who settled in New Jersey in 171". Lewis Vail, grandfather of the present head of tlie family, was a civil engineer, and in early iay. in Ohio be came prominent as a builder of canals and higiiw.ivs. Stephen Vail, grand-ir.ole of Theodore N. Vail, built the engines for the Sivannah, the first steam vessel that crossed the Atlantic, at the Speed well Iron Works, near Morristown, N. J., which he founded. It was this same Stephen Vail and his sons who recog iiized the greatness of Morse's inven tion and helped him with money and their own knowledge and experience in mechanics. At Morristown. at the Speedwell plant. Morse perfected and first suc cessfully operated the magnetic tele graph, and Alfred Vail contributed the machinery for the instrument and de vised tlie dot-and-dash alphabet, known thereafter as the Morse alphabet. So young Theodore N'ewton he was born in ( arro.l County, (.. July 1. lj, but moved with l;i parents at the age of four ears back to the old home at Mor ristown. N. J. was heir, prenatally. so to speak, to the science of intercommu nication, for the first telegraph line, a three-mile circuit, had been erected on his family's land just seven years be fore his "Virth. It was this indefatigable mechanical instinct heredity, one might call it that prevented Vail from becoming a physician. After he graduated from the old academy at Morristown. he read medicine with his uncle. Dr. William Vail, for two years, but during the same period he learned telegraphy, and realizing there would be quicker re turns from work in this field, he went West and became an agent and tele graph operator "f tlie Cnion Pacific railroad at a mal! statio n, until, in the spring of Im;;, he wa- appointed to a detkship in the railway mail service, then in a wty crude Mat.- of organiza tion. Vail s mechanical interest was imme diately Mined by tlie prob!ems he rec ognized in this incomplete s stm, and after one or two improvements of his suggesting were adopted, he was called to Washington and appointed assistant superintendent of ti e railway mail ser vice. In 1n7I he was made general su perintendent, and he practically reor ganized .tlie railway mail service and placed it on the working basis where it operates today. Two years lat-r, in :7, Vail met Oardiner ;. Hubbard, the partner of Alexander llralum Be',1. and from that time Vail began to make telephone his tory. B.-ll invented to telephone. Thom as Sanders financed it, and Gardiner G. Hubbard advertised it but Theodora Newton Vail established it on a prac tical b isiness Ikisis. The early struggles of those pioneers in the telephone business are known how Val. as general manager of tha Bell Telephone company, with an office in a shabby back room on Htade street, furnished only with a kitchen table and a couple of old wooden chairs, was obliged to take his salary of fc'iio a year in stock; ho- the Western Vriion Tele graph company -mr.hed the inventors, Kdison. Gray and iMlbear, to construct a talking machine that could utilize the telegraph wires, and how that corpora tion fought the BH1 company until a compromise was tffected; bow. by 1S54. ail tial esta riUsl-.ed the business on a sound basis and secured national recog nition for ilse telephone, how he organ ized 1-Val companies Pi all the principa! cities, and was president of the Be'.l company from lvo to and. after years of attention to other business In terests, was recalled to the joint presi dency of the American Telephone and. Telegraph company and the Western I'nion Telegraph company all these are the commonplace of the history of In tercommunication in this country, and need not be recoun'ed here. New York Kvening I'ost.

The announcement by the department of agriculture that there are W more horses and ' more mules in the country than there were a year ago will probably be Something of a surprise to the public, which has been watching out for a displacement of "man's best friend'" by the automobile.

How is it to be applied, and will the business c-f the country show- commen surate development?
