There is , perhaps , no subject on which people Burlington 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.

She does this partly in honor of herwho would have gradu ated at this tetvat , / for his.untimely death. 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.
