University of El Ezhar.
The El Ezhar university at Cairo,
Egypt, Is tho oldest university In tho
world, unless wo believe a tradition
that King Alfred founded tho Univer
sity of Oxford. It Is a pretty large uni
versity, too, as 10,000 students oc
cupy, Its classrooms and throng its
galleries. These students como from
all parts of the Moslem world. Tho
Mosque of El Ezhar supplies to all
willing to learn the gratuitous Instruc
tion which nnclent universities were
supposed to give. Not one of them need
pay a plaster for his education or his
maintenance. Their text-book Is main
ly the' kornn, which Is supposed to
contain all human wisdom nnd knowl
edge. Eh Ezhar was repaired nnd
beautllled by Tewflk, the khedlvo
whose mysterious and sudden death
was probably due to haters of tho English.

Robins Not Heralda of Spring.
"Tho sight of n robin does not
mean that spring has come," declares
Frank Smith, professor In the depart
nieut of zoology ut the University of
"As a tnntter of fact, hero hi cen
tral Illinois wo hnvo robins which
stay with us nil winter, getting their
food from berries. Tho majority of
mir robins winter In the southern pan
of tho state, Hying North with tho
stimulation of a wnrm wind, beoiug
a llock of robins shows that thoro bus
linen a migration, but it does not Indi
cate an early or late spring, because
iir robin lias no way of telling tho
present or future weather conditions.
The presence of r!gratory birds from
fnrtlmr South, as the culf states, Indi
cates weather conditions there, but
not horo. If there Is n snowstorm
nftcr tho robin's arrival, ho will f-eeze
and starve, for ho has not wit enough
to fly South again," Professor Smith
concluded. So our theory Is wanton
robins nro not hnrblngers of spring."
