The principal of one of Washington's

A clever girl had taken one of the

Educational Institutions That Arc a
Great Credit to the
Geneva is "only one of tUe uni
versities of little Switzerland.
Basel, founded in lG40 Lousann',
founded as an academy in 1537,
and as a university in 1890 Zu
rich, founded in 1S32 Bern, found
ed in 1834 Freiburg, founded in
18S9, have each secured a high
educational place, though in its
historic iuipressiveness Geneva
is unique. But Geneva and her
five companions, says Harper's
Magazine, are noble illustrations
of the spirit and power of democ
racy. Their support is derived
largely from the cantons in which
they are located. Although the
constitution of 1848 authorized
the federal government to erect
and to maintain a polytechnic
school and university, the univer
sity has not been established.
The cantons support their univer
sities with a willingness which is
as great as obtains in the states of
the American union touching
their respective slates universi
ties. The University of Zurich is
maintained by a commonwealth
of but 350„000 people, and within
an area of less than 700 square
miles. Basel, with a population
of less than 100,000, supports its
university. They are examples of
the power of an enlightened de
mocracy which interests itself in
the highest education. This in
terest is not confined, either, to
the cause of liberal learning, for
the technical schools of Zurich
are among the best of the world.
Bugs, Modern and Antique.
Because many antiques are ad
mirable is no reason for denying
the merit of modern rugs. There
are more rugs of high quality be
ing woven to-day than ever before,
and this is due principally to the
fact that there is abetter market
for them than ever before. The
United States alone imports $4,
000,000 worth a year—afoout $2.

Extraordinary Golf Drive.
It is stated by the secretary of
the Weston-super-Mare club that
when playing on that course a few
days ago Mr. Douglas Robinson
accomplished an extraordinary
drive. The distance from the six
teenth tee to the green is 305
yards, and there is a bunker just
guarding the green, but Mr. Rob
inson is said to have carried the
bunker with his drive—that is, to
have driven his ball so that it
went over the bunker before ir
touched the ground. In the or
dinary way 160 yards or 170 yards
represents the carry of a very fine
drive. The longest drive (carry
and run combined) on record is
generally understood to be one
done by Mr. Edward Blackwell at
St. Andrews some years ago,
when he drove his ball 366 yards.
Under Woman's Sway.
Between the mountains of In

among whom an extraordinary
custom prevails. Woman's rights
have apparently received fuil rec

state is to send a servant to pin

When Prof. Stillman of Sevens in
stitute gave a dinner to two friends, at
which most of the viands were made
artificially by chemical means, he had
small idea of the furore his efforts
would produce. But he has received
hundreds of letters asking how differ
ent dishes were produced—so many
that he has not had time to answer
many of them.
The chemical processes which he
employed were some of them simple
and some quite complicated. To make
vanilla ice cream by artificial means,
for instance, the alchemist took some
triple refined cottonseed oil, placed! it
in a centrifugal machine which revolv
ed at a velocity of 3,000 revolutions a
minute. A beautiful emulsion was
thereby produced, which was then
frozen, chemically, of course, The fla
vor was obtained by the addition of
vanilla, glucin and nitro-benzol. They
say that ice cream composed as above
is sold in many Southern states where
cottonseed oil is more plentiful and
consequently cheaper than milk or
cream. It is far from harmful, tastes
gobd, and does not melt as quickly as
the genuine ice.
