Even in the big universities there to be a growing realization of seems the advisability of bringing the mem bers ot the faculty and the sutdent body closer together In ties of friend ship. One of the pleasant signs ot an effort in this direction was the dinnqr given a week ago by the women stu dents ot the University ot Chicago to the members of the faculty, it was called a "chum" dinner. The compa smail ny was seated at numerous tables at each of which was placed one students. After diner a skit written by one of the girls and entitled Faculate in Urbe was presented to tlie amusement of all. It dealt entertainingly with the foibles of each guest as displayed in the class room. WHAT'S IN A NAME? The other day in Hackensack, when guests at a fancy dress bail were un masking, a woman recognized in one of the men the thief who had robbed her gas meter the day before. As he didn't care to meet'er there, he fled, and all the company gave wild chase. They caught their victim promptly and did what they could for him before the That's just the town police came up. it seems to us where the people ought to be up on how to hack and sack. LIFTING THE EMBARGO, We liavç delayed commenting on the'action of the president in regard to removing -Hfl" embargo on shipping arms to Mexico because we're count ing bn the Greasers shooting each other all up before the news of our reach Washington and attitude can confirm or change the president's poi Icy. WHAT ARE WE COMING TO? Whitehouse news items aren't what they used to be in the good old Col onel's days, talked, walked, dressed, and smoked we now have the paintings exhibited by the president's wife and tlie work done by his daughters. instead of how Alice velfare VS. SOME MORE OF THOSE P. F. Statistics just compiled state that county of Virginia the persons is in a certain proportion of illiterate greater than is that of any other county in the United States. Senator Kenyon who is the origina tor of the hog cholera hill designed to provide funds for the manufacture of a serum for that disease, does not pro pose to leave any one in doubt as to how he thinks government "For money twenty ought to be spent, cents," he said, "Uncle Sam can have a senator shaved in the free barber or can inject shop in the capitol enough serum to cure a hog of cholera. Any senator can send twenty of his friends to have their beards removed free, but would it not be better save the life of one hog than to have a senator's face mowed and powdered?'' to That Idaho man who contracted a "celestial" marriage in addition to the earthly one he was entitled to will before the courts get through see, with him, that the marriage thought to be of Heaven will come nearer fit ting a certain general's definition of r ar. A news item says that new deposits of coal have just been found which 'orld for centuries. That will last the would be all right if Old King Coal would keep a small balance deposited with us in our back shed. Just about what that ground hog has earned is a big dose of hug choiera and no serum handy. That mesalliance that he contracted with his shadow ought to be broken off if it kills him to do it. The Weiser Signal says that "good penmanship is becoming so rare that It may finally become necessary to issue Invitations with u typewriter." At your peril and only over the dead body of our linotype, good neighbor. The man who is just now paying for tlie lump he broke twenty-seven years ago is probably not an example of an aroused conscience but of a shrewd schemer trying to get his income down bclöw the taxing point. Every morning a canine in our neighborhood sets up a howling that would make a cougar gasp with envy. If the household wasn't such a good republican one, we'd suspect some one of kicking a houn' dog aroun'. If those movable schools for teaching farm-home economics keep on with their deadly work we soon won't know where to go to get sour bread, rancid butter, skim milk, stale eggs, and po tatoes soaked in grease. To some shallow minds, the highest possible form of mental exaltation arises from an opportunity to black ball a candidate for membership in lodge or club. As we see it the girl who, after an acquaintance lasting only three weeks, maried a man named Knettle, stands a good chance of being stung. We should like to know whether any snap-shots have been sent around of the kodak trust on its knees in Wash ington. Superstition must be out of date or those Delta Gamma girls would never have risked Friday, the thirteenth for their hall. A good many politicians hope the dissolution of the tipping trust can be postponed until election's over. As for some of us, about tiie only apjtle we saw yesterday was the Snow.
