The Milford Lyceum Association may well congratulate themselves on the good friends they have found in Mr. and Mrs. Frank Crissman, of the Crissmnn House. As had boon all along anticipated, the supper given for the benefit of the Associa tion at this popular hotel, on Thurs day evening, November 19th, was a decided success. Handsome pre parations had been made for the re ception of guests, and the friends of (ho Association rallied in good force to show their appreciation. Interest in the affair was widened by the co-operation of the Chau tauqua Circle. Many ladies of this circlo served as assistants in the dining room, and others the younger; ladies, as a reception committee in the pnrlor. The financing outcome is the sum of seventy-six dollars and thirty cents, with more in prospect. In this amount are included a number of substantial donations, some of them as high as ten dollars, and among the donors special men tion should be made of Mr. John Baldwin, Hon. G. S. Purdy, Presi dent Judge of this Judicial District ; Mrs. Doughty, and Mr. Cornelius Movers. For the results attained, great credit is duo to Mrs. Crissman, who was entrusted by the Board of Di rectors with the entire management of the affair, and who amply vindi cated the confidence thus shown. Especially happy was her turning for help to the Chautauqua Circle of which she is a highly valued mom- her. Mrs. J. J. Hart proved an able assistant in many ways. This is now the fourth instance in which the Crissman House has come to the help of tho Association in time of need, and it. is in no small degree duo to its thoughtful gener osity that the directors have beon able to persevere in their work and to keep the Reading Room open from yoar to year, though under neath all is the kindness of Mr. James W. Pinchot in giving the free use of the library building. From funds already in tho trea sury, the amount raised at tho sup per con probably be increasod to 100, for tho pnrehaso of books. A splendid foundation has been laid for a now library, by a gift from Mr. Frederick Beaulo, of Appleton's New American Encyclopedia, in 16 volumes. Others have also made valuablo contributions of books. Tho recont fire has crippled us j it certainly has not proved a fatal blow to our enterprise. Director. Football EijwniM. Two great footlxill games were played last Saturday, one in Phila delphia and ono in New York. The estimuted gross receipts of tho two are about 105.000. Probably this sum is equal to the income for a year in any of tho smallor colleges, and perhaps not over four or Ave in the country receive more. Much could bo suid in the advisability from several stand points of foster ing athletics at such a cost. Stu dents need exercise, but is tho sys tem of training now doomed nee. s- sary for these games, and the vast outlay of money for expenses in the training, beneficial to the student physically, morally or mentally ? Does this department of liberal edu cation pay ? Many studonta feel obliged to spend considerable sums in atteudonco at the games, and all this has a tendency to inculcate ex pensive habits, and perliaps lead to excesses not wholesome to genoral morality or conducive to solid learn ing. There will be a toning down of these things shortly and they will be conducted in a more modor ate way, and one more beneficial to the genovul educational welfare of the student. lleer I'leuty.

In Indiana the Congressmen pro pose that each town shall determine for itself who shall be postmaster by a popular vote for the candidates. This plan while it might not result in the most fitting selection, would have the advantage of giving the people their say, and taking the ap pointment out of the hands of a few politicians, who are apt to bestow the office simply as a reward for party service.
