Political Economy Club Meets
Tho regular meeting of the Po
litieal Economy club occurred last
Wednesday. A very able address
vras delivered by Prof. Caldwell
on "Proportionate Representation
in Government." Tho professor
briefly discussed tho ancient and
modern methods of voting, the
growth of tho ballot system, and
laws passed for purifyiug elections.
Tho evils of tho existing "major-
ly i'i vero
then pointed out
by diagrams in a
Ind i lusiratcd
a surprise to many. Prof.
Caldwell behoves that a true rep
resentative government should rep
resent tho views of all tho people
and not of tho majority. Tno mi
norities as well as tho majorities
should be represented.
He proved conclusively that our
present system of representation
did not represent the people accu
rately, that a great number of vo
ters ai'o either misrepresented or
not represented at all. He then
advocated the proportionate repre
sentative system. By this sj'stem
in electing, say congressmen, all
districts aro abolisheuand the con
gressmen elected at large. Each
Sarty may nominate as many can
idates as there ai-e congressmen to
be elected. Every voter then votes
for the required number. lie not
only gives hi& iirst choice but also
his second and third choice, so that
if his candidate is not elected his
second and third choice nury not bo
thrown away but will go to some
other candidate.
Tho professor does not claim that
this system is faultless but he
thinks it is just and practical and
much better than the present
method. Therefore it should be
given a fair trial.

ninteonth annual meeting of tho

Their Wodding Trip.
Mercedes McQuinnte was the
beautiful daughter of a AVolyau
merchant prince.
Patriquo Donald was' a student
of the great university in that sub
urb. Mercedes was the belle of the
village. Sho had beauty. She
had riches. "What more could be

of his parents, lie, too, was hand

in his life until he met Mercedes.
He was in love. So was Mercedes.
It was love at first sight.
A year passed. As boforcstatcd,
Mercedes and Patriquo were in
love. At this juncture in our story
her father discovered their love.
He immediately threatened to dis
own his daughter unless she would
give up Patriquo. But she re
fused. Sho had the blood of old
Irish kings her in veins. Give up
Patriquo? Never!
It was moonlight on the banks
of Salt Creek. Ever and anon a

there appeared down the road a
solitary traveler coining toward
the bridge. It wae Patriquo. The
lovers How to each others arms and
wept for joy.
But Mercedes recollected some
thing and drew back.
"Patriquo," sjio said, "1 cannot

"Why not?" gasped Patriquo.
"Patriquo, I know how poor you
are, but that makes no (fitl'erence
to me. I could live in a sod-house
with you and be happy!" "But

he cried, "take back your request!
I cannot grant it. Unless you dol
will throw myself over this railing
into the raging torrent beneath!"
But Mercedes was firm and as there
was a foot of ice on tho stream Pat
riquo remained on tho bridge.
Suddenly a thought Hashed
through his brain. "Mercedes!"
ho cried, "lend mo twenty cents!"
"Certainly," she said, "But what
good will that do"
"Mercedes, tomorrow we will

smiled sweetly.

Algernon Prettyfaeoaiid Klouuor
Lillyloeks had quarrelled.. It was
over nothing too, as lover quarrels
generally are. Eleanor had paid
a little too much attention to a new
student and Algernon said some
thing about it, that was to say the
least, impertinent, and of course
Eleanor resented. And after all
their vows and tender messages to
one another, thoy had begun to
pass each other by with a cold
stare. Eleanor had sent back tho
pretty little turquoise ring she had
worn for a year, and she cried a
little when she took it oil' too and I
am not sure but that there was a
suspicion of a mist in Algernon's
eyes when he received it back.
Hut they had both sworn that
they never would make up again,
although their hearts were both
sore and bleeding. Each one had
confided in tho nearest and dearest
friend, and it was a settled fact
that henceforth they were to be as
nothing to one another.
Alas, for human plans! Fate
had something to do with this love
quarrol, and this how it happened.
On Christinas day the llayden Art
Exhibit opened lip, in the Armory.
Now these two silly lovers were
both ve.y fond of art. So on
Wednesday morning bright and
early they both wended their way
from diU'orent directions to the art
Algernon had no idea that
Eleanor would be there, and
Eleanor was totally ignorant that
Algernon was in the city. They
both were soon interested in the
pictures and were lost to all their
surroundings. They unconsciously
walked nearer to each other.
Suddenly Algernon stooped
down to see the number of a pic
ture that was hanging quite low,
when his head came in contact with
another head that had bent down
for the same purpose. Algernon
started back and began to rub his
head when ho saw that tho owner
of the other head was none other
than his formcrj' sweetheart El
eanor. Thoy stared at each other
