The other I day Mrs. Brake discovered Calamity Jane In the hut of a n egress at Horr. mar Livingston. The woman was suf fering with fever, and was brakes 111 spirit. The scene that followed the offer of Mrs. Brake to take Calamity to her own home in Buffalo, where she could spend the remainder of her days in comfort, was pathetic, and the noted front ierswomati wept like a child. Calamity Jane haa been on the fron tier since she.was a young girl.

The last man she married was a drayman of Livingston named Burk. BASIS OF FUTURE WARS. Senator ( huuncov M. Dcpciv Declare* His Belief That They "Will Be Commercial, Senator Chnuncey M. Depew, who Is in Paris, is quoted in a New York Journal and Advertiser dispatch as saying: "The basis of future Wars is commercial. Commercial competition excites the passions as competitive prowess in other departments. Ger many is now our most hostile com petitor. The conclusion is obvious: The issue la to be fought on the sea; hence the newspapers thai are advo- \ eating a mighty navy are doing most | patriotic work. "Continental Europe entertains hos tility against the United states. Eng land does not, but We do not recipro cate her (sympathetic feeling. Not- ! withstanding commercial competition, ' all classes there believe that if the country were in jeopardy we would Come to its assistance. "France will not become very hos . tile, for most of her products are con sumed by her own people. Austria seeks a market for her surplus and ! is influenced by Germany. Italy will stand with her allies. The difficulty I with Russia will be settled by our ad ministration. 1 "The hostility against us in the va rious countries of continental Eu- , rope differs only in degree. Never theless an industrial alliance against us is impossible. The countries could j not agree as to percentage. We are their best customer and could retali- ! ate." HULL HOUSE FOR PARIS. Promoters of Institution There Given I.nad Formerly Granted to Peo -1 pl«s University. ' The promoters of the scheme to found a Hull House in Paris have been granted the use of the land formerly given to the projected Peo ple's university.

Ernst I.avis.se, of the Sorbonne and Georges Pieot, of the institute, are among the trustees. The preliminary work is in charge of Rev, Jacques ]>ardou\ and Henry Lamare, of Chi cago. The latter is familiar with the , work of Hull House, and has been of , great asisManee. He predicts that the enterprise will pay five per cent. on the investment. New York. and Chicago architect* will be invited to compete for designs of the buildings. Can't Find Giant Sloth. "The expedition to Patagonia in i search of the giant sloth has returned without having discovered it," says the London Dairy Express.

He discovered a species of puma new to science and a new lake, in which were many icebergs. Lar#e 7.oologieak ornithological, geological and bontanical colteetion* were brought back."

Miss Leah Bean, who graduated ' from the Senior Preparatory class last year, will begin a term of school on Union Flat next Monday. The material has arrived for the water tower. A 70,000 gallon water tank will be placed upon the tower, and this will surely reduce the dan ger from fire to a minimum. The W. A. C. Short Line has been considerably improved. In stead of running directly into the mechanical building it runs to the south of it, where a shed has been built to receive the coal. Quite a number of students gath er on the hillside each day, and watch the foot-ball practice. We can show our boys of the gridiron that we appreciate their efforts, and victories will surely come. The green house is Hearing com pletion, and it will not be very long till it will be in full working order. The octogonal tower in front, filled with palms and tropical vegetation of all kinds, will form a pleasing ! picture. Colonel Sapp, a former W. A. C. student, as well as one of our old foot-ball players, is in the city vis iting friends. For the past two years he has seen active service in the Philippine Islands as a member of Co. A, 35th Volunteers. Improvements in the chapel have added much to its beauty. In stead of bare walls defaced by the evidences of age, there are walls neat and frescoed next the ceiling with a beautiful design, thus mak ing an attractive place in which the students may gather once each day. The Y. M. C. A. held their first regular meeting of the year last Sunday afternoon. Dr. Hays gave an instructive talk on "Religion in Our History." There was a large attendance of both old and new students, and from the interest man ifested, and from the bright pros pects ahead, it is evident that the as sociation is on a better working basis than ever before. Meetings will be held every Sabbath after noon, and all are invited to come and help make them successful. The Y. M. C A. Reception. The annual reception given by the V. M. C. A. Saturday evening was the first of many social affairs of the year that make life at the college pleasant as well as profitable. The reception rooms at Stevens Hall were a scene of thorough en joyment to both new and old stu dents. The guests, as they ar rived, were warmly greeted by a committee consisting of Mr. Blanch ard, Mis. Van Doren, and Miss Susie Price; afterwards they mingled together, occasionally refreshed from the depths of the honest old punch bowl, until the hall clock struck eleven, then the last guest departed, and again the halls were silent.
