American Universities.
Many serious people are asking seri-
sue auestioas: VVhat kind of atadents
go to tkev American universities?
What do they do while there? .What
Mad of aa cpmo away? Is the uni
versity a "place where pebbles' are
polished and diamonds are blurred?"
Is a real man hindered more than he
la benefited by his four years of on
dergradaate stady? The first signifi
cant fact to be observed in certain
large universities is that outside in
terests are primary and university
work proper Is secondary from the
standpoint of the student. Athletics
and social affairs of different kinds
demand so much time, and the stu
dents keep such late hours, that they
are unable to do good work, even
when they have any desire to do so.
One Instance cited by the Independ
enrwill illustrate: A professor of na
tional reputation gives a course dur
ing the year to seniors. A large num
ber of the class have been absent as
much aa one-third of the 'time. A
inch larger number have failed to do
the assigned reading and to take the
work seriously. A student who shows
his interest either by asking ques
tions or answering them is laughed
at. The student prominent in uni
versity life is not often the one doing
good classwork from day to day, but
is a member of one of the many ath
letic teams, debating teams, or Is
prominent In fraternity circles for
some reason entirely apart from good
scholarship. The professor mentioned
above remarks that he does not object
to play as such, but does object to
making play the primary object of col
lege life. 9
New York can never hope to catch
up with Chicago in some things, but
must be content to trail behind, a
hopeless second. In the matter of
selling public buildings to perfect
strangers the western amateur has
been content to take a small amount
of the purchase money to bind the
bargain and slide away into obscurity.
When the sacker came back with ex
pectant eyes and $700 more to com
plete the purchase of the Masonic
Temple or the street car power house
he was unable to find his former
friend in order to thrust the money
upon him. The New York shark
doesn't go after any such small game,
says the Chicago News. He sells a
likely looking building to anyone who
comes along and, by passing over a
forged deed, gets the whole amount
and the real owner doesn't know any
thing about it until he reads In. the
real estate transfers that somebody
has parted with one of his tall apart
ment buildings. Some day the New
York confidence man will sell to a,
gullible stranger for a pleasure yacht
one of the choicest vessels in the
United States navy.
On the question of large families
Gov. Floyd of New Hampshire and
Prof. Edward A. Ross, head of the so
ciology department of the University
of Wisconsin, are paired. Gov. Floyd
blames a shortage In the cradle for
the falling off in numbers of New
Hampshire farmers and the necessity
for continually increasing state expen
ditures for roads and schools in the
farming districts. Prof. Ross de
clares that large families have a ten
dency to stimulate class antagonism,
famine, war, saber-toothed competi
tion, the dwarfing of women and
cheapening of -men. And there you

Burlington Will Refund Overcharge.
Owing to the error In making a
rate sheet as the roads claim, the
overcharges collected on minimum
rates from shippers will be paid back
when a claim is made. The mini
mum was recently changed from 25
to 40 cents. Complaints poured in
upon the railway commissioners and
this resulted in the return of the
rate to its former amount The Bur

Will Not Test the Matter.
Regent C. S. Allen of the state uni
versity has come 'to the conclusion
that 'he does not want to test the
right of theuniversity to audit its own
bills. He called on Deptuy Auditor
Cook, Secretary of State Junkin and
State Treasurer Brian, making them
a proposition to file duplicate vouch
ers with the secretary of the univer-
islty and the- state auditor. These
duplicate vouchers will contain in de
tail the amounts expended and the
articles for which they are expended.
It was agreed this covers the case.
K Is the Money That Stays at Heme
Which Makes Goes' Ones Possible
A Simple System That
Works. ,
Your schoolhouses. Those of the
town and those of the country dis
tricts. Yoa know what they mean to
you and to your children.
They represent the difference be
tween Ignorance and enlightenment
They mean to your children the differ
ence between signing their names
with a mark or in writing. They
represent the difference between the
civilization of the twentieth century,
as this'country knows it ud the bar
barism of benighted Asia or Africa.
You want the schoolhouse, do you
You would willingly make sacrifices
to keep it would you not?
You glory in the free educational
system of this country, do you not?
But Mr. Citizen, did you ever sit
down and consider carefully what
it is that makes possible the school
houses of this country; the school
houses that stand as beacon lights on
the tops of a thousand hills; the
schoolhousea-that carry cheer and en
lightenment to the hearthstones of'
the homes of a thousand valleys?
It Is the taxes that you .and, your
neighbor, and your neighbor's neigh
bor pay Into the school fund year after
year, is it not? ,
And why do you pay It?
Because you own property real es
tate, bonds and mortgages and be
cause that property Is valuable.
What makes your real estate val
uable? It is the prosperity of the commu
nity. As the community grows and
prospers the value of your property
increases. As your property increases
in value and you write your wealth
In thousands instead of hundreds, the
amount you pay into the school fund
increases. When the school fund in
creases the old building gives place to
a-new and more modern structure, In
which your children and your neigh
bor's children secure their instruc
tion. And, again, the erection of the
new building but adds more to the
value of your property.
It is an endless chain system that
builds villages out of cross roads,
and cities out of villages.
Who are you, Mr. Citizen, and who
Is your neighbor and your neighbor's
neighbor, whose contributions to the
school fund make the schoolhouses
possible? You. and your neighbor.
and your neighbor's neighbor, are the
farmers, the merchants, the doctors,
the blacksmiths. You are each and
every man who go to make up the
community in which you live, and it Is
only when you work collectively that
you accomplish results that you build
up new schoolhouses.
And how shall you work collec
tively?, By a simple system of boosting one
another. You, we win say, have
oats to sell your neighbor buys them
of you. He, you wilh say, has dry
goods to sell you buy them of him.
It is this system of mutual help that
makes the town grow into the city,
that increases the price of real estate
in the town and in the community sur
roundingjit that builds new school
houses, j
The dollar that is unnecessarily sent
away from home never bought so
much as a nail for a schoolhouse, never
put a shingle on its root
But the dollars that are unneces
sarily sent away from home send back
to the community which they left
only rain. It is these dollars that
prevent the replacing of the leaking
roof, the broken door hinge or the
worn out desk.
It Is the dollars that are unneces
sarily sent" away from home by you,
and your neighbor, and your neigh
bor's neighbor that decrease the value
of your, and your neighbor's, add
your neighbor's neighbor's real es
tate. That makes the school fund
1 grow less year after year. That forces
the discharge of the competent teach
er for a less competent one. That re
duces the standing of. your schools
in the educational system of the coun
try. Work it backwards, send your
money for the things you need away
from home Instead of spending it at
home, and the system that builds vil
lages out of cross roads, and cities out
of villages, that Increases the value of
your real estate and permits you to
write your wealth In four figures
where previously three .figures were
enough, and you will make of the
thriving little city but a village, and
of the village but a cross roads. ,
Do you not believe, Mr. Citizen, and
do you think your neighbor and your
neighbor's neighbor should believe,
that It pays best to keep the dollars
In the home community? Keep the
system moving forwards, help to
make a city of your village. Boost
your town's interests and you boost
your own.
Pie Vender Had Kick Coming.
There Is a certain man in a little
northern New England town who sells
home-made pastry at the county fair
each year. The other day he called

Criminals' Power Over Animals.
Few criminals have possessed such
power over animals as did the Span

years back in Newgate. England, for

tamed two rats so that they would
'come at his call andyfoUow him about

Minions upon nUUione of, doners are
fraudulently taken from 'the pockets
of the people year after year through
the operation of confidence mem. The
schemes used by these mem are numer
ous. Nearly all are .based upon ,the
fact that the average person is' always
willing to takethe best of a bargain.
During the past few; mouths swin-'
dlers have been operating in different
parts of the country, and their method,
while a modification of aa old swin
dling game, has some mew features
worthy of notice. Their usual proced
ure Is to locate fanners who" are not
wen known to local bankers and loan
men. They approach the farmer and
under pretext of seeking to purchase
.farming land, manage In some way to
secure his signature. This is general
ly done by Inducing him to write a
letter, or to sign some statement.
Once 'the signature issecured. a ficti
tious deed to the farmer's land is pre
pared and this Is fixed up in such a
manner as to show the seal of some
notary or other offfcer. Then witr
this deed the swindler Is In position to
negotiate a loan upon the land. This
game has been successfully worked in
a number of western states.
Residents of- agricultural districts
should be continually on their guard
against the signing of receipts or any
kind of contract which may be pre
sented to them by strangers. Within
the past year some smooth swindlers
have succeeded in securing thousands
of doUars on fraudulent notes, secur
ing from farmers, who were foolish
enough to take for trial washing ma
chines, refrigerators, etc., and to give
their receipts for the same. These re

the check accordingly. Thus It can be
seen that a check written for eight
dollars, by the addition of the letter
"y" cad be made to read for eighty
dollars and the changing of the
amount if it be in numerals, by the
addition of cipher, makes the forgery,
when well executed, hard to discover.
Some of the Virtues in Friendly Riv
alry Between Merchants.
Good, healthy competition and
friendly rivalry, devoid of aU spirit of
hoggishness, is a good thing for any
town. Each and every business man
and property owner in a town, .and the
country immediately surrounding it
should be Intensely interested In every
project, particularly should every mer
chant be active In matters that means
general prosperity for the place, and
which will increase trade for all the
merchants of the town. People' gen
erally like to do their trading in towns
where there are weU kept stocks and
plenty variety of goods, and where
there is sufficient competition as to
assure low prices consistent with good'
business Judgment There is little use
for the merchants of a place to blow
and brag about their business, unless
they can demonstrate that, they are
"delivering the goods" and satisfying
their customers. There is mo good to
be looked for by merchants decrying
the goods and the methods of their
brother merchants.. There is no more
effective way of killing the business' of
a town than by fostering a spirit of
petty Jealousy and of narrow selfish
ness. Wherever such a spirit is found
it will be discovered that trade is be
ing turned to some other town where
merchants and. business men work
more in harmony with one another.

The Public Should Have Them Trans,
lated by the Draojiets.
What virtue Is there In the secrecy
rith which the doctor hedges about
mis profession?
"Professional etiquette" occupies a
prominent place in the curriculum of
every medical school, and when strict
ly analyzed "professional etiquette"
seems to mean "doing what is best for
the doctor, individually and col
lectively." Among the-things that "Is best for
the doctor" is the writing of his pre
scriptions in Latin, and thus keeping
the public in Ignorance not only of
what it is taking for Its Ills, but forc
ing a call upon the doctor each time
a prescription is needed.
In plain and unmistakable English
the writing of prescriptions In Latin
makes business for ther doctors.
Let us say that you have the ague.
You had it hist year and the year be
fore. Each time you have visited the
doctor and he has prescribed for you
In Latin. You have never known
what he has given you for the disease,
and so each time you are forced to go
to him again and give him an oppor
tunity to repeat his prescription in
Latin, aad his fee In dollars.
If you ask the doctor why he uses
Latin in writing his prescriptions, why
he writes "aqua" when he means wa
ter, he will give you a technical dis
sertation on the purity of the Lain
language, and the fact that all words
are derived from it etc. It wUl be a
dissertation that you may not be able
to answer, but it will hardly convince
It would be a good thing for the pub
lic to devise a little code of ethics of
