The second annual reception of tho
Woman's club of this city by Miss Barr
was given Monday at tho university
gymnasium, from 2 to 5 p. m.
Miss Barr greeted tho club in hor
charming way. She then explained the
mothod of taking physical examina
tions. Tho Importance of taking those
examinations before tho student enters
the physical training course was espe
cially emphasized. It is very necessary
that the Instructor should know whore
there are deformities and thus bo able
to give such exerclso as would correct1
anything of tho kind. When Miss Barr
had finished her short, but exceedingly

ized that tho responsibility of the In
structor and tho work done by ono In
such a position Is very much greater
than tho public give credit for. People

Is required of ono in order to be ablo
to teach physical culture. But tho fact
Is, that anyono who understands tho
work and Is ablo to hold any kind of a

Tho elementary ohms gave n very
pretty drill In hnr bolln, Miss Stella
Elliot leading them. After this oxer
else, Miss Elliot led tho class In a run.
Miss Barr then drilled the advance
class In Military marching, which was
heartily npplaudi-d by everyone. Mad
tho young men been nblo to have seen
the conciseness with which the move,
monts wore executed, they would havo
been Inspired to raise tholr record In tho
cadet drill.
Miss Annie Hpurok then put the class
through a vigorous drill In Indian clubs.
Everyone appreciated the work done on
the horse nnd parallel bars. Miss Elliot
led the work on tho -bars, while Miss
Hpurek took charge or tho vaulting at
the horso.
Miss Alberta Hpurek delighted every
one with hor work on tho travelling

thoroughly enjoyed tho exciting game
with bean bags. Tho young ladles then

state university, and for years a spe
cial student In botany there, has Just
won tho botanical fellowship of Co
lumbia college, perhaps the best in the
country, In the face of lively competi

of thorn being professors In well
known colleges. The fellowship
Is practically sutllclcnt to pay all tho
expenses of a student for the year. Tho
prize was largely won by the recent
part of tho "Scm Bot.'s" "Flora of

Apropos of this part of tho flora, tho

Rurvoyor of Customs Mr. J. M. Hurkn
spoke boforo tho university Political
Economy club Wo'dnosihiy evening. It
won ono of tho most Interesting nnd
praotlcnl talks the club has onjoypd
this year.

they did not, thoy hnd mado a mistnke
In asking him to nddresn them. He.
Moving facts were wanted he would

A great mnny people In this world
aro too anxious to get hold of -tho al
mighty dollar. This makes It neces
sary for the government to closely
guard Its business with reference to
tho collection of duties on Imports.
Formerly nil Import duties wore col
lected at senports, thus necessitating
that all goods bo unpacked at these
ports of entry. This meant that all
Inland goods must bo unpacked, ex
amined -and then repacked. In order
to lesson the expense and Inconvenience
Inland customs houses were established.
Goodn may now bo forwarded to tholr
destination and duties collected by tho
local surveyor of customs. To nvold
any possible loss to the government, of
duties, the goods are kept continuously
bonded until duties are paid.
Tho Inland merchant cannot sustain
loss. Ho Is protected by an examin
ation or appraisement. -Hero tho United
States Is Judiciously lenient. By giv
ing satisfactory bonds tho Importer
may take goods from custom houses
to his own store or warehouse.
Ports of entry are whore goods first
como into tho country. Ports of Im
mediate transportation arc ports where
goods may be forward under bond,
without preliminary examinations. As
goods may bo forwarded under bond,
released, so shippers as a rule prefer
to ship overland as local freight rather
than ship In bond nt twice the amount
of duty.
Bonded carriers deliver bonded goods
to bonded warehouses. Both tho duties
and merchandise nro covored, so tho
government takes little or no possible
Tho larger customs houses havs

and naval ofllcer. At smaller ports

There are seven classes of customs
Those owned or leased by the gov
ernment, and used for storing seeds or
unclaimed goods.
Imported bonded warehouse, that Is,
his own store or warehouse.
Thoso warehouses used for general
Those used for bulky goods, bonded
yards or sheds.
Bonded elevators, etc., for grain stor
age. Those warehouses used -to store goods
to bo exported.
Those warehouses used In connection
with smelting and roilnlng ores.
Mr. Burks said tho describing of tho
goods to bo imported and making out
the Invoice was no "boy's play." Tho
description must be definite and spe
cific. The penalty for a false invoice
is $5,000 fine or two years' Imprison
ment, or both. This penalty was
necessary. Mr. Burks gave Instances
In his own oxporlonce where men had
tried to mnko him bollovo something
they ought not.
Tho collection of Import duties Is a
complicated bustnoss. It must bo
transacted with precision and honesty.
Evory day men are trying to evade
tho customs laws. This Is why tho gov
ernment Is so careful and exacting.
Mi. Burks' talk was highly practical
and thoroughly appreciated. As a
member of tho club said, "It was some
thing we don't get In tho books."
Ono of tho most interesting papers
that comes to the library Is a little
monthly called "Praeco Lotinus," pub
lished almost entirely In Latin, for tho
discrimination and encouragement of
the use of Latin speech, and for the
cultivation of 'Latin literature.
