SMITH GIIILS PIQUE FACULTY.
Antics Begin With a Parody Whicfh is
Undignified and Irreverent.
Northampton. Mass, April 2. Smith
college Is in a fever of excitement be
cause of lack of harmony between the
faculty and : the leading girls in the
class of 1904.
The troublfi began on the college ral-
y day. February 22. A play, "Every
Freshman," by Alice Wright of Al
bany, N..Y was given. It was a par
ody of the. old morality play, "Every
man," and a tily slap at the faculty and
their present examination system.
Wlhile the play was in progress sev
eral memberu of the faculty left the
hall, saying that nothing was sacred to
the girls and that they "would parody
the gospels next if something were not
A young woman of Cleveland, O., is
responsible for another escapade that
unset the facultv. Early in the year
this young woman began to hand in
papers in the psychology aeparvmeut
signed "Mary Duncan," a name which
was not her own.
The professor scanned the name
thoughtfully and concluded that he
had lost "Miss Duncan's" . card. 5Ut
he enrolled her in the college list as a
new pupil. "Miss Duncan's work
was excellent, and the professor of
psychology recommfended her to the de
partment for good work. The club
girls were aware of tne auai personal
ity of their classmate and with a great
show of seriousness1 took "Mary uun-
can" into the club. . '
Then "Mary" carried her joke fur
ther. She wrote letters begging ror a
ock of the professor's hair and a
thread of his favorite blue necktie.
The young professor "caught on" at
ast and his dignity was hurt.
At the Glee iclub concert, March 18,
the club sang! about "Mary Duncan,"
and the faculty have expressed dis
approval of "Mary Duncan" in em
Another difficulty arose from a rroiic
In which a papier mache efflgy of. a

severe illness, with pneumonia.
The residents of this section are
wondering where their friend the con
ductor who constantly smoked cigars
cigarettes and a pipe on his trips
along the Bank'street line is. He has
gone to Brockton on a short visit. Be
fore, leaving he remarked to a man
who happened to be at the station that;
ho was going to Brockton, Mass for
about a week. A strike was expected
to occur among the trolley men there
and he expected to be of some service
to the trolley company. He said that
if the strike didn't occur during the
week, he would return to Waterbury.

The Albanian Movement Considered
Dansrerona. J. VIENNA,
April 2. The rebellion , in
Macedonia is considered here to have
begun already, and the situation is ex
pected to become worse. , The Albanian
movement is regarded as specially dan
gerous because the sultan will hardly
dare to suppress it, he being surround
ed by Albanian guards at the Yildlz
kiosk. It is therefore thought that the
reform plan will remain a dead letter
in Old Servia.
The report is confirmed that M.
Stcherblna, the Russian consul at Mi
trovitza, was shot in, the back by Al
banian soldiers. It is estimated that
there are 20,000 Albanians under arms,
and a general rising would be extreme

ROMANCE AIRED IN CITY COURT,
Beautiful OPolish Girl of Good Family
Tires of Her Husband, a Farmhand.
' New Haven, April ! 2. -A (Polish ro
manee involving the love, elopement
?and separation from her husband of a,
pretty girl was aired in the city court
yesterday when John Wagner was tried
for- breach of the peace, hin young
wife being "the complainant. - Some
years ago Wagner, , who was an ordi
nary workman with no particular edu
cation, but with fine stature and other
wise manly bearing, met Katrlna So
llnsfci, a beautiful r3 of good family
and considerable wealth.
. In their native village in Poland
they held clandestine ' meetings, Ka
trlna becoming more and more enam
ored of her new found love. As her
parents objected to their marrying they
finally decided to elope and ; come to
America. Eventually they settled in
New Haven. Their journey from Po
land was not all sunshine, and when
want knocked repeatedly at the' door
love finally flew out; of the window.
Katrlna's love ;, had waned i and she
J.onged for the happy home of her child
hood again. The husband.1 however.
remained steadfast, and 1 despite the
raot that his wife left him he constant
ly tried to see' her and their two chil
dren. The other night he went to
where they lived, attempted to force
his way into the house and was sub
sequently arrested. "
After hearing some details of the
case Judge ;s Dow remarked that he
knew of no law that would compel
either husband or wife to . live with
each other against the win of one or
the other. He advised Wagner to
keep : away from his wife, and on his
promise to do so he would nolle the
case; 1 Wagner consented to this on
condition that his wife return his pass
ports. Mrs Wagner said she would
do this If she could find them. ;
CHANGES AT THE MINES.
Anthracite Worker Begin Under tit
New Conditions Without Hitch.
HAZLETON, Pa. April 2.Th read
justment of conditions in and about the
mines, as a result of. the findings of the
strike commission, which went Into ef
fect yesterday, has not been , accom
panied by any serious disagreements
thus far. The mine workers feel confi
dent " that all of the companies will
abide by the award of the strike arbi
trators, and, while they look for slight
hitches here and there, they anticipate
no serious trouble.
The principal change is the estab
lishment of an eight hour shift for fire
men.' At some of the collieries the
force of firemen will not be Increased.
Instead each man will be expected to
take care of a proportionately larger
number of boilers than under the
twelve hour schedule.
, Where the mine workers do not con
sent to the continuation of the double
shift on Sundays of the engineers and
pump runners bosses will be put on for
the one day that the former class of
employees is idle. Quitting time at all
of the collieries will be at 5 o'clock. ' ? '
