BARUCH May.lt 1996. BOYS AND GIRLS' DEPARTMENT. Ihe Old Time and the New. Washington Post. Prol. Francis Hovey Stoddard, of the University of the City of New York, contributes to tbe outlook and interesting paper on the changes in the (scope and character of American colleges in tbe pact half century. Tbe increase in en dowments and in the cost of supporting a college is the first that tbe protesoor mentions. Fifty jears ago, he ays, $50,000, or even lees, was ofien deemed sufficient to ttarl a college. That is quite tiue, and many a college thus started turned out graduates who won distinc tion in evtry honorable field of endeavor. Some ot those small institutions have been built up into higher standing and greater usefulness by gilts from their alumni and other friends, but many of them are still poor as to funds, though rich in record of good work performed. Tbe cost of a course of any of the leading nauiuuuna oi uoerai learning is so great that but lor the small and cheap colleges thousands of boys who desire a collegiate cdurse would be unable to obtain it. ! Many of the men who have been leaders in statesmanship and the processions worked their way through little country colleges, teaching school in winter and going into the bay field during the sum mer vacation. Prof. Stoddard states, as showing the contrast between the old time and the new, that the New York law now re quires that an institution applying for a charter must have a minimum endowment ot a half million dollars in order to pro cure the power to confer degress. But he oontends that more than half a mil- ion is needed, even for a small college. Tbe change in the character of college education is responsible for the increased equipment. Before the middle of this century tbe average graduating age had risen from nineteen to twenty.two years. The average age of the graduating classes in ten leading colleges this year was twenty-two and a fraction. It will con tinue to increase as the curricula are ex tended. The .curriculam of fifty years ago the liberal education with which the boys ot seventeen and nineteen went out to conquer tbe world included Greek. atin, mathematics, philosophy, logic, rhetoric, practical, mora!, and religous in struction. The proiessor discusses tbe introduction of physical education, re garding it a beneficent change. He says tbe paternal idea ot collegiate discipline, prescribing specific and-unvarying studies; has passed with the raising ot the aver, age entrance age from fifteen to eighteen years, rue general tendencies, me pro- essor concludes, seam to be toward the disappearance of tbe college cloicter life . .. -A j as a separate ana peculiar innuence, anu to be toward uniting tbe college oppor tunity with tbe influences ot education. Tbe lessening of tbe importance of the in. dividual graduate at commencement is al so significant. ''He used to deliver an oration, to receive flowers, applause, con gratulations, and was considered a com pleted and and important example ot learning. Now, in the midst of a crowd of classmates, he silently takes his degree, and passes almost unoticod to join the ranks of tbe workers in tbe world' Snake Around a Man's Leg. Joe Climer, who is living with his brbther-intlaw, Henry Wilson, at his farm in the country, Went the other right to run a' man out of his melon patch. In hot weather Mr. Wilson sleeps in me puruu ui uis rDoiucuuti. 'When Joe returned 'from his chase Henry was asleep in his accustomed place, the moco shining brightly.' Mr. Climer's attention was attracted to s6mething on Mr. Wilson's leg and looking closely saw 'J a bis black snake coiled around the leg halfway between tbe knee and tbe ankle. Without waking htm he got a hoe and cut the snake in two. Mr. Wilson awoke about this time and when he saw his es cape be was a much scared man. It is likely be will not again use tne porch as a place for sleeping. Greens boro Kecord. Better Further On. Nashville Christian Advocate. The Christian man can never reach that point in hia religious experience at which it is not bis privilege to say, "it is better iunner on." xiowever grana the days behind him, there are still grand er ahead. The horizon widens with ad vancing years. Old age is richer than youth: eternity surpasses time. To all those woo maintain a living raun in di vine realities the forward look is eminent ly becoming. The possibilities of relig ious blessedness cannot be exhausted either in this world or in the world to oome. Everything else wears oat; but the love of God has in it an undecaying vitality. It is new every morning and fresh every evening. Our Lord put this great truth before tbe bamaritan woman when be said to her: "Whosoever drink eth of this water shall thirst again, but whosoever drinketh of the water that shall give him shall never thirst; but tbe water that I shall give him shall be in him a well oi living water springing up into eternal lue. ine time will never come when the supply of God's grace shall not be fully equal to all the demands that may be made upon it. As the cen turies and the milleniums go by, we may still say: "it is better further on." Victims of youthful follies suffering from nervous debility, lack oi sell-confidence, impaired memory, and kindred symptoms, should send 10 cents in stamps for large illustrated treatise, giving means of certain cure, with numerous testimon ials, sent in a plain sealed envelope.

Harper's Round Table - When tbe note of invitation from your friend arrives, the first thing lo do is to answer it, setting the day and train when she may expect ou. She probably men. t:oned tbe first iu her invitation, and en close a timestable so that you might se lect your train. Having decided on this, keep your engagement. Do not allow a slight inconvenience, or a caprine, to let you chang your plan. Go when you are expected, and stay an long as you are asked to stay-- - An inviftion usually mentions whether ycur friend would like you to come for a week, or ten days, or a fortnight, or it may be read thus: "Plea9e giye us the pleasure of a visit from you. Come on Friday afternoon and stay until Tuesday," or on "Monday, and help us celebrate Louis' birtLday, which occurs on Tuesday; we will hope to' keep you with us until Friday." It i3 very much pleasanter to know for how long you are invited than to have it left uncertain; but when no time is mentioned, one takes it for granted that a week will cover the period of the visit. . A girl will find her pretty travelling dress (which at this season is of rough cloth dark brown or blue by preference, with a thick jacket and a neat little hat) suitable for walking, driving, and sight seeing while away from home. She must be sure that her boots and gloves are m dainty order, without missing buttons, and, if she chooses, a fur collar or boa and a muff may complete her out-door cos tume. For use in company, afternoon teas, evenings, little gatherings of friends, at dinner, or any fete to which she is in vited, a pretty waist of silk or chiffon and a shirt of silk or fine wool will bo appro priate. In packing waists use plenty of soft white tissue-paper, so that they will come out uninjured at their journey's end. Your mother will provide you with a simple evening gown, it she thinks it needful, and a girl never looks sweeter than in simple white muslin or in a white gown of some sort. With the white gown must pa white shoes, and house gownB ot all kinds ueed dajnty foot(gear. Now, pray forgive me, but when going on a visit never omit your night gowns, changes of underclothing, stockings and handkerchiefs in abundance. A lady is never unprovided with enough of these essentials. Tke your own comb and brush, your toothspowder, toothsbrush, coal cream, and all the little toilet acces sories which you like to have at home. Supply yourself with pins, the common kind and tbe sbeath kind,, and have your needle and thread in case of a rent to bo mended. Significant Talk in England. Washington Post. We believe that the London Finanoial News is regarded as an authority on both sides of the Atlantic, and yet it is saying strange things just now about the free silver movement in this country. 'There is a plain moral in the remark that if the United States would venture to cut herself adrift from Europe and take outright to silver she would have all America and Asia at her back and the command of the markets of both coun tries. The barrier of gold would be more fatal than aoy barrier of a custom house. The bond of free silver would be stronger than any bond of free trade. There can be no doubt about it that tithe United States would adopt a silver basis tomor row British trade would be ruined before the year was out. Every American would be protected, not only at home, but in every other market. Ut course tbe united States would suffer to a certain extent through having to pay her obliga tions abroad in gold, but tbe loss of ex change under this head would be a mere drop in tbe bucket as compared to the profit to be reaped from the markets of Sou ih America and Asia, to say nothing of Europe. The marvel is that the Unit ed States have not long ago seized the opportunity. It has been a piece of luck that it has never occured to, tbe Ameri cans to scoop us out of tbe world's mar kets by going on a silver basis, and it might serve us right if, irritated by the contemptible apathy of our government toward tbe Bilver problem, tbe Americans retaliated by freezing out gold. It could be easily done. We have heard this prophecy before. It has been made by more than one European writer on finance. Moreton Frewen has, insisted that the United States was blind to its own interests in hesitating to adopt free ooinage of silver and then enter into a commercial union with Asia and South America. He has insisted that nnder such an arrangement the silver countries of the world, while they might sell to Eigland, would do all their buying here. Jfroi. Abreot, the great Geaman authority, has also argued that the United States, if followed by Germany, Belgium, and Italy as he thinks it would be, sooner or later could, through the medium of free silver coin age, almost destroy England's foreign trade. He has been extensively quoted by the gold men, but chiefly as to the dif ficulty, in his opinion, of our acting alone. He has invariably said that a concert of action among the nations named above would give them the control of commerce in every quarter of the globe. And now comes the London Financial News with the positive statement that free silver coinage by the United States, acting inde pendently, will multiply its trade beyond conception and isolate Great Britain so far as concerns tbe silver using countries: It is needless to say of course, that the Post does not intend to surrender its con victions at the instance of a British news, paper. The Post, however, believes in a fair and impartial discussion of pub lic questions and We therefore reproduce this raiber unexpected utterance as a i contribution to tbe controversy a eon- tributlon, by tbe way, from a source . m hitherto regarded as of high authority. CHURCH AND W0M AIMS D B P A R Woman at Premium. 8W Louis Globe-Democrat. There is a city in the western part of Canada, close to tbe Pacific ocran which is named by all who visit it the most desolate spot upon tbe face olj tbe earth. Its climate is good, its natural resources excellent, its bouses fair, its streets well paved, yet within this town there is an airofioriuru dejection that strikes tbe most careless traveler that comes within lis boundary. " " ." It is on Vancouver island 4 sweet fair spot. And the desolation is caused by one thing only one the lack of women and girls. This particular town is scarcer of the product than others of its locality. There are many towns upon this island, but this one lacks women so badly that in a receut census of the place it was nearly three thousand short. This number in. eluded a court oi serveng women, women to do the work of tbe bouse, cook and wash and iron. It also included working girls and women who are not expected to marry. And, of course, it took in the queens of the city, the fair matrons of the homes and the mistresses of the pretty establishments. Today the doorsteps of these houses yawn vacantly and the vines flitting over tbe portals seem to say, "She comes not yet. The greatest bargain sale of wives ever known took place upon a recently opened domain a few years ago. A frantic call was sent to tbe cities for 100 women. And poor girls, out of fun and curiosity and willingness to have a home, went out there. The men met them at the station. The girls looked them oyer -shyly. By evening a1! tbe girls had tound boarding places in the wooden shanties of the "town." And by Sunday the parson was kept busy tying the nup tial knots. The prettiest girls and tbe riphest ones got the wealthiest men. A. girl with $50 was an heiress and a man with 9100 a prince. The plain girls took up with poor fellows, with hopes and chances. It was a quick, natural selec tion. One very handsome fellow, with blond curls, got a very pretty girl, though nei ther bad a cent. It was a case of beauty. The rude courtship was carried on in the three evenings between the time the girls arrived and Sunday, and within a week there were nearly 100 small wooden houses going up in the town. There is no name for this peculiar state of society where women are wanted to mal'.e homes and where money is laid down for them and paid-to them to queen it over a home. A glaring headline in an English paper once called it.' The Barter of Women in America." But among those who see the satisfactory after workings it is merely the good na tured consent of the girls to adjust them selves to their country, which is yet new enough not to be as evenly distributed as it will be when tbe twenty-first cen tury man and woman come in. Must Have a Cabinet Job. William Jennings Bryan smiled two years ago when Miss Gertrude M. Bagby, daughter of Dr. G. H. Uagbyv of this city prophesied that be would be nominated for the presidency by the next national Democratic convention, and elected. Miss Bagby was' tbe class prophet of the class of '94,. of the State Normal School, at Greensboro. Mr. Bryan had been invited by Dr. Mclver to deliver an address before tbe graduating dass and he made an able one before the class of '94, on finance. Af ter wbich, in her prophesies, Miss Bagby said that Mr. Bryan would be nominated by the next national Democratic conven tion for the presidency and would be e lected. The first part of the prophesy has ma terialized beautifully and there is every chance that the latter part will bo as the firet. Miss Bagby was the first to sug gest Mr. Bryan for President in this State, and he was the maji settled upon by the North Carolina delegation. New born Journal. i - Bryan and Silver. The National Campaign now begun will be of more absorbing interest than any since 1876. The contest will extend to every State North and West, and Massachusetts will be as debatable ground as Michigan. The Democratic standard bearer, William J. Bryan, will take the flag of Free Silver into the very citadels of Gold, and from first to last tbe strtig gle will be sensational. There will not be a dull week from now until November. THE STATE is the Leading South Carolina Newspa per supporting tne national .Democratic Ticket and tbe National Democratic Plat form. It is the admitted champion of the great issue of Bimetallism, udoo wbich the battle will be fought. It has always been a good newspaper, and will be better than ever during this atrucnrle. It will keep the people of South Carolina cioseiy iniormed ot tne progress and pros pects of the campaign. No Democrat seeking Democratic news and doctrine can afford to be without it. CAMPAIGN RATES. To place it within reach of everybody. The Daily State will be sent from this time until Nov. 10 to any address for $1.75. and the Semi-Weekly State for 40 cents.

A train left here, consisting of seven cars, over the West Jersey Railroad, bearing a special excursion of Red Men and their friends, of Bridge town, N. J., and Salem, and had reached the crossing of the Reading Railroad when it was struck by the 5:45 down ex press from Philadelphia, demolishing two cars and telescoping the two following. The engine of the Reading train became a total wreok, killing the engineer and fatally injuring tbe fireman, and the car behind it was aleo thrown from the track and many of its occupants killed or ins jured. Tbe responsibility of the colision has not yet been placed but Wm. Thurlow, the operator at the blaok tower situated at tbe crossing, has been placed under arrest by order of the coroner. Leaving this city, the tracks of the West Jersey road run parallel to those of the Camden & Atlantic untill after they cross the drawbridge, when the roads cross at an obtuse angle, John Greyner, engineer of the Wes t Jersey train, saw tbe Reading train ap proaching the crossing at a swift speed, but as the signals were open for him to proceed on his way, he contin ued. IJis engine had bearly cleared tbe track of tbe Reading road, when the los comotive of the latter train, which left Philadelphia at 5:45 p. m., struck the first car full in the center, throwing it far off the track into a near-ditch, and completely submerging it. The second car of the West Jersey train was also car ried into the ditch, the third and fourth cars being telescoped. The engine of the Reading train was thrown to the other side of the track, tarrying with it the first coach. A few minutes after the col lision, to add to tbe horror of tbe situa tion, tbe boiler of the Reading looomotive exploded, scalding several to death and casting its boiling spray over many of tbe iuiured Dasencers. A thousand left here for the scene of the wreck; Darkness fell quickly and tbe work of rescuing tbe injured and the dead bodies was carried on under the lurid glare of huge bonfires. It was a grue some sight presented to on-lookers as the mangled and burnt forms of the dead were carried from tbe wreckage which bound them and laid them riHa by side on the gravel bank near the track, with no other pall than the few old newspapers gathered from ih passengers. The wounded were carried to tbe Atlantic Citv HosDital. wh of them died shortly after their arrival. The old excursion house at tbe foot of Mississippi avenue was converted into a morgue and thither the dead were takan. At a late hour this evening there are 29 ooaies iaia oat mere, none ot them as yet identified. This city is terribly excited . i i . over ine acciaent. . The Philadelphia medical corps were hurried here: These surgeons materially aided the volunteer corps of this city, whbh embraced almost every physician at present within its confinos. Many of the injured were taken to hotels as tne city nospitais soon became over crowded. About 39 of the wounded had their injures dressed and were able to pro ceed on their way- It is expected that fully a dozen of those now lying in the hospitals will not survive their injuria.
