About forty years ago I was a student at WIIHon seminary , which was then an Important preparatory school for college . coil our Eemlnary buldlnls : were I owded with !

I was before the mania for sports had taken possessIon .of eth- dents , and so . as far a I can remember It waJ only on Saturday afternoon that wo had some fun on the grounds or upon the slopes of Mount Tom , near whIch ! the seminary Is. situated or upon the water. The students worked as hud and fare as cheaply as the men and women employed In the big factory of the place . and I know that I pored OVfr my book of Greek , Latin and mathematlc. for hours at tim night after the factory people . were asleep. -"Our lemlnary toes were not more than ) , $20 I term , and time payment was not required - : quired In the case of a student who confese' Inability to mot them , while Prof. Carl , 4 WS especially gracious to such a student ( . of whose Impecuniosiy no one ess : was ever made aware.

There were other clubs at which the prices were higher than at OU9 : but we were the Spartans , and did not care for that. Plenty of the students boarded at th house of factory workers whose wives pre- pared the meal As for the dearer places I doubt I there was any of them at whlc:1 : the charge was over $3 a week. At our club cub we had enough of that nourishing provender which Is the very best thing for young students who mean to apply their whole mini ' to their slules without distraction. We hall ' gooJ mush with maple molasses : we hid corn bread and mill : : we had fish : we bad hash , , and other thmlngs.
