The last boll had sounded and professor
had begun to lecture. Two or threo camo

attention was paid to them. Professor
was talking about sensations. He was
making statements that wo could scarce
ly bollove. Ho was explaining a very
elaborato theory. Just as he had finished
thinking he had made himself clear, the
bright school teacher drawled out,"It has
always been u mystery to me how" and
he went on to upset the theory.
Profossor let him have his say and then
ho talked awhile again. I felt sorry for
that school teacher when professor got
through with him. He ridiculed his Ideas,
showed In what ways they were erron
eous, and put all In such ridiculous light
that we couldn't help but laugh.
Professor then went on with his lect
ure. Many of his remarks created ser
ious doubts In our minds, but we were
afraid to venture a criticism. We did not
care to furnish amusement for the other

Tho class broke Into a roar. It was a

tho recitation, and could afford to laugh.

A COLLKCTION OF CKL13I1RIT1KS.
There Is probably no other publication
In America so sucessful as The Youth's
Companion In securing tho services of
famous men and womqn. Think what a
collection this Is, for a single year; Ian

Crane, Andrew Carnegie, Hon. Theodore
Roosvelt, Dr. Lyman Abbott. Madame Lil

quickly. Professor said so many things
that were contrary to our former know
ledge, that were, kept busy trylnff to rec
incllc our Ideas to his.
"Gentlemen, has the last gong struck?"
inquired tho Instructor as she looked up
from hor books. "Class please come to
order then," she said, after receiving an
allirmatlve answer. "Now Mr. G , If
jou are ready wo will listen to you."
Mr. G slowly ascended tho platform
and delivered his extemporaneous talk in
a high pitched voice.
"Criticisms class, don't be backward as
I havo told you this Is your laboratory,"
said the Instructor. It seemed to me Mr.
G that your voice was rather thin, not
enough lung power" she added.
"No mum," added Mr. G , "my ungs
are very strong. I blow Dr. Clarko's
lung tester clear down Into the water."
That was enough. The'class broke Into
an uproar and evon tho Instructor was
compelled to smile. Mr. G "s turn was
passed and ho was undoubtedly glad.
With the words, "examination on the first
two acts" ringing In my ears, I had arisen
very early to do a little cramming. I had
read, and carefully noted the idiomatic
constructions, but for all that had an 111
defined feeling of Insecurity.
Whenever I had a spare moment I
crammed, acting upon the implied advlc
of tho chancellor that "cramming was bel
ter than llunklng."
The gong bounded. I hastened down
stairs and found thoro a half dozen girls,
all as anxious as myelf. "I'm just sure
I'll Hunk." "O. will It be hard?" "Well
there'll 1m another, ai.yhow" were nomr
of the remarks that I caught as I hastened
Into the class room. I took my seat. The
last gong sounded. A breathless silence
llllcd the room.
The professor took out his class book
and called tho roll, then Just as If half a
hundred of anxious hearts wore not
waiting for the vordlot, ho coolly an
nounced: ''1 expected to have an exam
ination today and had given orders to have
tho questions copied, but through some
body's fault connection hasn't been made."
"You can oxpoot anything from that hy
giene class. After tho gong had struck,
the professor started to call the roll, and
hence did not look up until It was too late
to see who threw the snowball which went
whizzing past his ear, and struck tho
black-board, throwing particles of snow
In all directions. The professor looked
around tho room searching for guilty coun
tenances, bu every boy was gazing stud
iously at his book. He then reprimanded
tho unknown culprit, ind proceeded with
tho roll call. The lecture was then begun.
He evidently was not expecting a second
attack and was entirely off his gvard when

A WONDERFUL ADVANCE
TN MANDOLIN MAKING.
The now 1897 Washhurn mandolin Is
creating a perfec; furor nmong artists
and amateurs. It Is so far ahead of any
mandolin ever heretofore constructed
that It never falls to awaken the most
en:huslastlc encomiums and expressions
of surpr'se mingle with the praise, for
tho new Washburn mapdolln fairly over
steps the line of expectation, and with
Its rich mellow tone marks out a field
of 1:b own. How the makers of the
Washburn achieved this triumph Is an in
teresting story. R seems that a year ago
they began a series of experiments, hav
ing In view the production of a mandolin
tone finer than anything the world had
yet heard. First, nil the experts In their
omploj were called upon for Ideas and
doB'gns. Then having gotten a special
studio filled with plans .and models, invi
tations were sent out to prominent man
dolin players, teachers iand connoisseurs
to assist In the work. Expense was not
spared. Some of the most valuable Ideas
came from the great mandolin soloists
such men as Tomaso, Shneffer, Wells,
Best, Sutorious, Hazen, Bouton, Turney,
Page, etc., and It is hardly too much to
say that nonrly all the available mando
lin talent of the country contributed
something to tho new 1SD7 Washburn
Model Mandolin. So today It stands upon
a pinnacle raising a new standard of
mandolin excellence. For the time It
lias been before the public its sales are
phenomenal. A beautiful new catalogue
(fully Illustrated) telling more about this
mandolin, and also giv'uB full particulars
of the 1897 models of Washburn guitars,
banjos and zithers may be had by ad
