"Dock won't carry double," Mid Isa bel argumentatively. "He'll have to this time," said Jim grimly, reining up dose to a lone bowl der. "Come here and climb on behind. How put your arms around me— whoa!" as Dork pitched violently and Isabel for tbe second time was burled /nto a bed of suow. She could bear tbe swish of Jim's quirt bringing awlft retribution to Dock aa Jim ngaln forced him close to tbe rock. •You're not hurt, Isabel?" anxiously. "Come on and try It again." "No, I'm not hurt," reproachfully, ' 'bat I prefer to walk." starting off valiantly. i "Isabel, If you walk. I'll walk!", Jlm'a voice was ns decided ns her own. "Oh. Just as you please," she replied, trudging obstinately forward. Jim swung down, took one stride to ward her, then wavered and clutched tbe saddle. The girl caught her breach sharply. "Why. you can't walk!" she cried penitently. "I forgot about your lame, ankle!" "Will you ride then?" Jim's face warn white, but he would not give In. "Tea—oh, yes! Don't stand there and look like that! Why did you ven ture on horseback? Yon know the doc tor forbade It!" "I'd like to know what would have become of you If I hadn't come! Now come on!" Jim slowly remounted and rode to the bowlder, where Isabel meekly fol lowed and mounted ngiln, clinging desperately In response to Jim's warn ing to hang on. "Thla beats walking, don't It?" asked Jim after a few minutes' blissful realisation of her clinging nrma. Isabel, though she made no reply, certainly did not deny the assertion. She could not forget Jim's face In that Instant when he clung to the sad dle, and she was consumed by a de sire to know the exact st«te of his feel Ings toward her. Her mission to Chi na grew all at once distasteful and stupid as viewed from behind the 1 ' j I ! broad back of her brother's partner. "The atorm's lifting," Jim remarked. "We'll be home In a little while now." "Jim—t"— "What's that?" said Jim. turning his "Jim, I'm—awfully—sorry." "Sorry? Because we're atmoet home? 8o'm i." The undoubted sincerity of bin tone aroused Isabel's drooping courage. "Oh. Jim, I'm sorry I aald I knew more about boraea and the weather than you did- and because yon had to come after me—and and—hurt your foot again." "Anything else!" •'Y-e-a; I'm sorry foir what I aald about cow punchers and -and—every thing." Jim managed to turn around enough to catch a glimpse of her face. "Isabel, look here. You know what naked you before you started out on your wild goose chase. Have you got different answer now!" There waa no escape. "Br- y-e-s"— "And have you got any mission to go and teach the heatbeu 1 'hlneaeT" "No- that to- I"— Jim groaned helplessly. "Ami you're stuck there behind me where I can't—steady, now. Dock. Reach around here and ktoa me, Isa bel. If you don't I'll set Dock to buck lug again." Isabel, thus Intimidated, made haste to obey. A Specimen of Italian Huaver.

TO ESTABLISH QUAD SYSTEM. New Residential Plan, Ha Believes, Will Eradicate Many Exieting Evils. Considers Present Club Life Demoral izing, Unwholesome—Views of Prince ton Alumni. President Woodrow Wilson of Prince Ion university, who recently told of hi* plan for the social reorganization of the university, declare* that at present cliques and faction* dominate the uni versity. Ho will abolish the club* and these combination* and have an equal number of student* from each class room in what he call* a quad. Ill* suggestion* have been adopted by tbe board of trustees and will soon be put In operation, nay* a Princeton (N. J.) dispatch to the New York Time*. Mr. Wilson say* in part: "Under our present social organiza tion there Is a constant, even an In creasing disconnection between the life and the work of the university. The nodal activities of the place not only have no necessary connection with any of It* serious task*, but are besides exceedingly complex and absorbing and, in fact, absorb the energies of the most active undergraduates In purely nnacademlc things. It ha* become common for sopho mores a* the end of the academic year approaches to ask the ndvlce of their Instructors (now that there Is some Intimacy of counsel between them) as to which career they shall choose for the remainder of their course, the stu dious or the social. 'The last two years have seen Influ ences of this kind Increase In strength at an extraordinary rate and gain a momentum which makes this the im perative time of action. It Is clearly evident to any one who lives in Prince ton and Intimately touches the life of the place that these Influences are split ting classes Into factions and endan gering that class spirit upon which we depend for our self government and for the transmission of most of the loyal Impulses of tbe university. 'The 'politics' of candidacy for mem bership In the upper class clubs not only produces a constant and very de moralizing distraction from university duties in freshmen and sophomore ca reers, but enforces all sorts of ques tionable customs. i j of the classes. The younger classes are at no point made conscious of the In terests of the university. Their whoje thought is concentrated upon Individ ual ambitions, upon means of prefer ence. upon combinations to obtain self ish Individual ends, and the welfare of the university us against any particu lar bad custom which will serve that purpose Is Ignored, labor ns the upper class men may to point it out and en force It "Not only do men In all classes feel that too great absorption In study will Involve virtual disqualification for so cial preferment; they also feel that the chief objects of their happiness and their ambition are connected with their social affiliations, not with the general Interest of the university. "If for nothing else than to keep the classes undivided In spirit, the new quad divisions would lie preferable to die present club divisions." President Wilson tells of his plan to avoid these things. "It Is our purpose," he says, "to draw the undergraduates together Into resi dential quads. In which they shall eat as well as lodge together, and In which they shall, under the presidency of n resident member of the faculty, rogu lute their corporate life by some slm p\» method of self government. For tMs purpose it would bo uo<<e8sary to (dace all future dormitories In such re latiou to those already erected as to form close geographical units. Every undergraduate would be required ac tually to Uve lu his quad--that Is, to take his meals there as well as to lodge there. The residents of each quad would be made up as nearly as might be of equal numbers of seniors, Juniors, sophomores and freshmen. "The object of this arrangement would l»e to put unmarried member* of the faculty In residence in the quads lu order to bring them into close, ha bltual. natural association with the un dergraduates. aud so iuttiuately tie the Intellectual and social life of the place Into oue another; to associate tbe four classes in a genuinely organic man ner and make of the -rlverslt" a real social Isxly. to the evousiou ui cliques aud separate class social organisation* to give to tho university the kind of common consciousness which appar ently comes from the closest sort of social contact to be had only outside the classroom, and most easily to be got about a common table and In tbe contacts of a comniou life. "I cannot imagine a service to tbe university which would bring more dto tlnottou. mure eclat, throughout the eo tlre university world, or which would give to our present clubs a |H>sition of greater Interest and Importance In tbe history at academic life in America." Among Princeton men in New York tbe announcement made by Dr. Wood raw Wilson, presideut of the nuirersl ty, that, with tbe aid of the trustee*, be Intended to abolish tbe college clubs, , formed tbe liveliest topic that ha* been Bader discussion since the preceptorial system was launched, says the New , York Herald. Dr. Wilson's plan was debated vlg orouaty aa to Its wisdom, but tbnxigh I eat the discussion there was a '.em it to not at all Ukely say tbe plan hr organized opposition to tbe alumni win develop. At tbe Princeton club the proposed change waa much discussed. William W. Phillips, treasurer of tbe club aad president of tbe board of trustees of the Cap and Gown club at Princeton, which will be abolished by the inaugu ration of the new plan, said; "Tbif: change will be revolutionary, and, because It smashes tradition*, If for no other reason, It ha* been and will be adversely received by many. We remember, however, that when Dr. Wilson Installed the preceptorial sys tem—an Americanization of the Oxford Idea—the adverse criticism waa strong, and yet, revolutionary as that plan was In this country, It is now ac knowledged to be a signal success. The president's farsightedness and wisdom in that instance will go far toward bringing him support from the alumni body In his present plana. "At Princeton there are thirteen clubs, with memberships of thirty up per class men each. The Greek letter fraternities were abolished In 1873 and the club plan Inaugurated In 1670, when the Ivy club was started. Of the 7,000 alumni I do not believe more than one-fifth belong to clubs. "I have no doubt Dr. Wilson has seen signs of tbe division of classes into cliques through the existence of so many clubs, and this division he prop erly seeks to prevent Democracy has prevailed at Princeton, so Princeton men think, to a greater extent than at tbe other large eastern institutions, and this democratic feeling should be fostered. Its perpetuation unquestion ably is what the president is striving for. "Of course the proposed change will be radical. Breaking up present club groups and creating quads of 100 will cause a good many shocks to sentiment and memory. With the membership of the clubs the faculty had nothing to do; with the membership of the quads It will have everything to do. "Among the alumni there will be good deal of protest. Officially the alumni body can do nothing If the col lege authorities decide to go ahead, but It can exert influence. My opinion, however, is that after sober second thought the alumni will stand behind Dr. Wilson and the trustees virtually to a man. They are for Princeton first, Dr. Wilson second and themselves aft erward." William Edwards, deputy commla i sloner of street cleaning for Manhat tan and former Princeton football star, j had this to say; 'The clubs have brought this themselves, at least In part The trou ble lies In their number. As they In creased they took up more and more ! of the men'B time. The alumni, how ever, do not favor total abolition of the clubs, tar that means the disrupting of our traditions. "If the honor system apd the system of faculty supervision as at present In force were held to, It would be an right." MATTRESS FROM ROOSEVELT. Canal Worker Said It Would Mako Him Happy, and Ho Got It. John Baylor, formerly a plumber of Poughkeepsie, who has been In Panama for some time, has good rea son to remember President Roosevelt. When the president visited the canal zone, Baylor stood In line with others waiting to shake hands with him. Mra. Roosevelt, struck by the fine ap pearance of tbe youDg American, called her husband's attention to him. Tbe president then turned to Baylor and asked him If he suffered any hard ships. "I would be happy but for one thing." answered tbe plumber. "What la that?" Inquired tbe presi dent. "I'd give anything for a mattress to sleep on." 'Tan will have one. my boy," re sponded tbe president, with a warm grip of Baylor's hand. That night there was a fine mattress awaiting Baylor at the house where he lived with other workmen.
