"I.lvln and learning were Very cheap at

the Sun reporter , "and I am sorry that prices
have risen at all of them. About forty years
ago I was a student at WIIHon seminary ,

students at our seminary were mostly the
sons of farmers , or of bulness people or of
prof03sonal ! mono or of mechanics , and all of
al
us lived as plany ! ] as Erasmus said that bud-
ding scholars ought to live , and applied our-
selves to our Hudl01 as closely as Erasmus
eve.r applied Ihmelf to his. 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.

Its purpose As for the prco ! of table board
In the hOUJOS In which students boarded , 1
ranged from $1,25- week up to perhaps twice
that amount for all I know. I paId $1,2 I

"A lot or us formed ourselves Into a club
one of the members of which went out Into
the town and negotatr for rates of payment -
ment with sOle housekeeper of economical
mind who could Ilerhaps accommodate twenty
or thirty or us at a long table In her
house. 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. Every day In the
t week we hall I change and Sunday was the
bet day of the week. There was wit a scrap
of waste at our table In our club which
was for those of the students who had no
coin to wast ( I remember how proud WI
were of our scholastic poverty.

Whlsley Trust and Chicago Gas have bc-en
two conspicuous stocks In which Chicago
has been most Inteested this weele In
Gas there ha\e been conferences every day ,
attended by hal a doze of the biggest lal-
'ers In New York , relative to the development -
mont of plans by which I Is hoped that
the trust can be relieved or the continual
embarrassment which at present exists At
these conferences long legal opinions have
been submitted from two of the most conspicuous -
spicuous atorneys of Chicago , seting forth
what acton In their opinion can
and should be done 10 give the
property a leA11 status Out of thcse conferences -
ferences was evolved some days ago In
elaborate memorndum forwarded to Chl-
cage amid now prob.tbI1 ' In the hands of the
attorney general of IllinoIs. I Is understood -
stood however that the sponsors of this
prepositon have reaay no authority to do
what they are SUglestn can be done. At

One or the rUter humorous eatures of
the tale on this score hearth In what are

suggestion that Attorney General Moloney

that the credit of Chicago Is being damaged
by his prosecution of the case against the
