UNIVERSITY OF NOTRE DAME,
Notre Dame, Indiana.
We call the attention of our readers
to the advertisement of Notre Dame
University, one of the great education
al institutions of the West, which ap
pears in another column of this paper.
Those of our readers who may have
occasion to look up a college for their
sons during the coming year would do
well to correspond with the President,
who will send them a catalogue free
of charge, as well as all particulars re
garding terms, courses of studies, etc.
There is a thorough preparatory
school in connection with the Univer
sity, in which students of all grades
will have every opportunity of prepar
ing themselves for higher studies. The
Commercial Course Intended for young
men preparing for business may be
finished in one or two years according
to the ability of the student. St. Ed
ward's Hall, for boys under thirteen, is
an unique department of the institu
tion. The higher courses are thorough
in every respect, and students will tind
every opportunity of perfecting them
selves in any line of work they may
choose to select. Thoroughness in class
work, exactness in the care of students,
and devotion to the best interests of
all, are the distinguishing characteris
tics of Notre Dame University.
Fifty-eight years of active work in
the cause of education have made this
institution famous all over the country.
The Cicada's Drum.
It is in July that the cicada asserts
itself. It crawls out of the ground after
a sojourn of two years therein, as a grub
climbs a tree trunk, cracks its shell down
the back, takes a sun bath, flies to an
other tree, and, life's burden resting
lightly on its shoulders now, as I have
said, asserts itself. It means that the
world shall know of it, by making a
great noise. The method may be original
with it, but is not its own exclusively,
any more. The world over the cicada is
Tucked out of sight, on either side, the
cicaila has a "kettle drum" of intricate
construction and means of plaiyng it of
infinite complexity. The result is a rap
id, shrill, whizzing sound that sets July's
noons all a-tremble! Not that they are
done with ail their noise in this month,
for they are more numerous and active
in August, but it is in July that they
commence, what for poetry's sake we
will call their celebrating of Queen Sum
mer's reign.—Philadelphia Ledger.

At a recent gathering of prominent
citizens in New York city, the object of
which was to raise funds for the benefit
of a hospital, a number of speeches were
made commending the worthy charity
and sounding the praise of the manage
ment of the institution. But none of the
speakers once during the little talks al
luded to the main object of the meeting
until it came to Representative Goldfogle
to address the gathering. He was greet
ed with applause when he stepped for
ward on the platform.
After stating that h'» had listened with
pleasure to the high words of praise and
commendation bestowed by the speakers
on the management of the hospital, he
said he had failed to note that any oue
had felt it necessary to call attention of
the audience to the purpose that had
brought them together. This oversight
on the part of the gentlemen who had
preceded him reminded him of a story.
"When Lincoln was President of the
United States," he said, "he took a walk
down Pennsylvania avenue one cold win
ter evening. During the stroll he met a
poor, forlorn woman, thinly clad, shiver
ing with cold. When she saw the Pres
dent she mistook him for a minister, and
falling upon her knees, with hands up
lifted, begged his blessing, saying that
she had three small children at home
starving to death. She said: 'Oh, Mr.
Minister, pray to the Lord to help me.'
"When she had finished President Lin
coln said: 'My good woman, it's not a
minister that you need. You need a gro
cer,' and the President took a card out
of his pocket and gave her an order for
$25 worth o* groceries."
The point was at once seen by the au
dience, who applauded loudly, and the
result was a liberal subscription to the
benefit fund for the hospital.
Mr. Goldfogle has a happy faculty of
always illustrating a point with a tell
ing story, and therefore he is much in
demand at conventions, political and
business gatherings.—New York Paily.

apostle, and was well under way with it
when old Joe, returning empty handed,
concluded he would quietly slip in and
hear his master preach.
Just as he entered the preacher leaned
over the pulpit, stretched forth his hand
with a most impressive interrogation in
voice and manner, and called out: "And

One woman in New York has a room

comes a day and an hour when her world
is distinctly too much for her. when she
is desperately tired and nervous and

nerves and the servants seem possessed
of the devil and everything goes a-gley.
Every woman knows those days.
She might scold the children and the

thunder cloud. She might hold on to her
amiability with both hands—have "a nig

Under the Shade at the McKinley Tree
at the White House.
The white house grounds at Washing

younger trees is the little white oak
planted by President McKinley on the
morning of the first day of November,
Norris, the old gardener who held the
tree while the President shoveled on the
earth, said that at the time it was plant
ed he did not expect it to live a month,
but at present it looks as though it were
good for a cenury. The little tree stands
just in front of the old conservatory,
now being torn down to make room for
the new office building of the present chief
executive. During the heat of the day

In gambling one thing is certain, and
that is the very large percentage is in

is the only law of chance. And the re

Morrissey's life—a party from Washing
ton were making merry in the wine room
of the club house in Saratoga, among
whom was a youthful attache of the
French embassy. Without remark, this
attache suddenly rose, entered the play
room and going to a roulette table,
tossed a hundred dollar bill on ten, black.
The dealer politely /informed him that he
had exceeded the limit.' The attache
was insistent., Morrissey, sauntering up,
nodded to the dealer to let it go. It won.
Refusing to accept chips, the attache
gathered in his winnings and rejoined
his friends. Half an hour later he did
the same thing, and was again success
ful. At frequent intervals he repeated
his trips, invariably winning, never once
losing until he had won $17,000. when
his friends carried him off. As he left,
Morrissey remarked to a friend: "I
never take the limit off that the bank
doesn't lose. Nevertheless, there was a
profit on the night's play for the bank.—

Australia's Blackberry Pest.
Blackberries thrive more luxuriantly
in Australia than in Europe or America,
their growth being so rapid that in many
places they are regarded as an agri
cultural pest. Like the first rabbits, the
original .blackberry vines have grown
and multiplied until they bid fair to
cover the face of the country. The
bushes are not cultivated—they can look
after themselves, as many Australian
agriculturists are painfully aware—but
