bleachers on the south of the grand
stand were moved to the cast side of

Mr. Loveland recently received a
letter asking rt what temperature it
was too cold to snow. In this con
nection It may be said that the popular
Impression that it can't miow at very
low temperature Is erroneous. The
truth Is" that It Is not likely to snow,
not that It cannot snow. At low tem
peratures below 5 or 10 degrees the
moisture forms particles of ice.
Cornell Is now following the lead of
other eastern colleges and will play
baseball with a professional team.
The policy of this institution previous
to this year has been to play with col
lego teams only. A southern trip Is
scheduled for the season and they will
play the Philadelphia Athletics. Ne

The students of Michigan Agricul
tural College are baring a disagree
ment with the fatuity and hritvo called
a strike. Some time ago tho sopho
mores and freshmen had a cane rush.
Phis was opposed by the faculty and
since then they have suspended and
expelled members of those classes. The
result has been to enll the remaining
students together and the declaration
that no more classes would he attend
ed until tho action by the faculty
should he reconsidered. They Insist
that this body has not picked the lead
ers In the offense, but are discriminat
ing against certain students who were
not the most nctlvely engaged In the
rush and some only passive particip
ants. The college Is now at a stand
still awaiting a final decision.
The, advanced chorus has been grow
ing slightly this year. There are more
mnle voices than usual. The training
offered by this work Is of the utmost
value to the students of the univer
sity. Book learning is made much
more pleasant by an education In the
The university Is fortunate In hav
ing one of the best leaders In the weBt
at the head of this chorus training
work. A special effort ho been made
this fall to enlist more people In the
choruses, with some good effect. The
work requires one hour a week and Is
very pleasant. At present the "Mes
siah" is being studied with the mid
year concert In view. The larger the
chorus Is the better the chorus, and
the larger the number in the chorus
the more delightful the singing.
A mass meeting will be held Friday
In Convocation hall for the purpose of
arousing effective enthusiasm for Sat
urday's football game with the Haskell
Indians. The rooting so far this year
has given signs of impiovomcnt from
game to game, but there is a derided
deficient in volume, due to the fact
that few bring megaphones with them
to the game. Let ecryon' interested
in bringing looting up to a high stand
aid he present at the game Saturday
aimed with megaphones, colors and
plenty of wind. Come early and allow
the leaders to group yon so that the
rooting may be forcible from ever
point of view. Don't yell in chapel
and then go to Saturday's game with
closed lips, but let jour enthusiasm
upon the ground bo the climax to all
that you have done in rooting so far
Don't forget that a megaphone is high

custom, that of man showing their re

the Boston Herald thinks, but fears
that as soon as the graceful, delicate
hi'P.d kissing begii-H the cranks will
discover a new microbe in it that no
amount of manicuring will render In
nocuous. Some policemen are tender hearted.

CHINE8E AND HIS PET.
Little Anecdote that Shows Deftness
of the Oriental.
A certain newspaper man, i who was
induced to "try" a stylographic pen,
got It out of order by reckless treat
ment, and took It to a pen-shop for
repair. The man there soon showod
him that there was nothing serious the
matter with It, tho only trouble being
thnt ho bad neglected to do some little
thing In using it. Then he began lo
take the pen apart for the newspaper
man's Instruction, so that he might
see how very simple a thing It Is.
"Simple!" cried the Indignant owner
of the Instrument, "it Is as complicat
ed as a Chinese puy'.e! I don't won
der that I can't make it 'go' when
I want It to!"
The penman laughed.
"You remind me," he said, "that
there Is a Chinese In this town who
used a stylographic regularly. Ho came
here to buy one several months ago,
and when I showed It to him ho began
to tako It all apart. I hurriedly
stopped him, supposing that he would
do It an injury, but he at once put
down the value of the pen, saying
that It was his, and then continued
his dissection of it. 1 give you my
word that he handled that pen more
deftly than tho man who mado it,
and In five minutes he had It put to
gether again, so that It worked better
than It did at first. Those fellows
heat the world at understanding little
details. Now, an Irishman or an
American I beg your pardon could
never have done that; and, remem
ber, it was the first pen of tho kinel
the Chinese ever saw." Philadelphia
