WE "PASS" NOBODY.
There is , perhaps , no
subject on which people
who delight to be smart
differ more than on the
proper pronunciation of
words , particularly when
taken from foreign languages. The follow
ing iingle , written by one of a jolly party
which rode on "The Burlington" from Min
nesota to St. Louis sometime since , illustrates
the different pronunciations of r-o-u-t-e
whether "rowt" or "root : ' '
Hear the pilgrim's joyful shout :
"The Burlington's a dandy route ,
Other lines we henceforth shoot.
This is the only first-class route ;
Rival claims we hereby scout.
None can please us but this route ;
Locomotives never toot
Half as nice as on this route ,
And the roadbeds hereabout ,
All are rough except this route ;
All in all beyond dispute ,
The Burlington's the banner route. "
On the pronunciation there is some latitude
for choice , but none on the question whether
"The Burlington" is the best and favorite
line to Chicago , St. Louis , St. Paul , Minne
apolis , Peoria , Denver , Kansas City , Chey
enne , St. Joseph.
" \Vie gehts" is a German salutation , liter
ally translated "How Goes It ? " Addressed
to one of our friends it was answered in this
"Wie geht'B" did you say , mein freund !
If you speak of "The Burlington's" train ,
Scbneller tils time it goes , do ye mind ,
. "The Burlington" vestibule train.
Are you wishing a journey to take ,
To tne north , south , east and west ;
Then apply to your local agent ,
I am sure he will do his best.
To supply you with information
And very cheap tickets , too.
To go on "The Burlington" limited train
Is the very best thing you can do.
Without fatigue or discomfort.
You will reach your journey's end.
And the polite conductor and brakcman
Will nil your wants attend.
The folio wins is the unsolicited expression
of a traveler who has just returned from a
trip over "The Burlington : "
What road in all the great Northwest
Is smoothest , pleasantest , and best.
With every sweetest comfort blest ?
"The Burlington. "
What road has engines strong and fleet ,
Accommodations most complete ,
Employes all polite and neat ?
"The Burlington. "
What road that ever strives to please
Its patrons all , consults their ease ,
And to their safety always sees ?
"The Burlington. "
So , when your summer tour you make ,
To mountain , sea side , falls , or lake ,
Your own good sense will bid you take
"The Burlington. "

Hastings College for a permanent scholar

in honor of herwho would have gradu

This is a very generous donation to a most
worthy purpose. Her son , who was taken
away in the bloom of youth , will have some
one in the college to remember him and the
generous and loving mother as long as the
college exists. It is impossible to guess how
many young men will be fitted in Hastings
College for life's work by this munificent
gift , a memento of her love for the boy and
her good will toward the institution. Hast
