does not conflict with any dates so fnr

for 1001. Besides those enumerated, a

At the meeting of the president and
fellows of Harvard College held yes
terday morning, a system of retiring
allowances for professors was estab
lished, to go into effect September 1,
1800. All men who have served us
professors or ns assistant professors
for twenty years and nre themselves
over 00 years old are eligible for one
of these allowances. Such men, after
retirement, will be allowed one-third
of their last salary for twenty years
of service, and one-sixtieth of their
lust salary for each additional year of
service, provided that the retiring al
lowance shall in no case exceed two
thirds of their last salary.
The cencral idea of this new sys
tem is the same as that which the
Corporation in 1880 proposed as
ground for endowments. In answer
to t'lieir appeal three principal gifts
were received, besides ninny smaller
gifts. The first of these was $500. The
second, consisting of $20,000, was the
gift of Sydney Bartlett, who was for
inanj years leader of the Boston Bar.
A few years Inter the endowment was
anonymously increased by $200,000. At
the end of this yenr the sum will have
reached $H40,000. Harvard is the first
Institution In the country to inaugu
rate such a system of retiring allow

"I've just hud another," said Collins
gloomily, us he cuine Into the room.
"Another what?" 1 Inquired.
"Another odd experience. ... seems
to be my fate in life to have strange
things happen to me, or have some
body tell some crazy story that keeps
me worried."
By this time my room mate had di
vested himself of his outdoor winter
weuring apparel, had jerked himself
into a smoking jacket and was filling
a briar pipe from n tin box on the
study table. After he had finished
that pleasant occupation nnd had tak
en a few fragrant whiffs from the pipe
I ventured to remark:
M lll l - ! J.J.W..V... ..wii .
"Not much." Then lie moved over
to his favorite chair and sat down. "I
guess I'll tell you," ho snid. "It wns
odd; it was good; 1 enjoyed It, so I'll
tell you nnd let you enjoy it too.
"I wna sitting at one of the tables
in the university library when T felt
someone tap me on the Shoulder. I
turned nround nnd saw a seedy-looking
fellow, carrying a swell mackin
tosh over his nrm. Ills voice sounded
ns though he had n bad cold when he
asked if T would come out in the hall
and speak to him a moment. Of course
T went out Into the hall. We sat down
brary and the coat was a hangln' over
a chair, the same us the day before,
but, there wasn't nobody slttlu.' In the
chair. It went on that way day after
dny, but nobody ever sat in the chair,
and 1 never could find out who the
'mack' belonged to. Then I 'begins to
got inquisitive. T watched the coat
like a hawk, but no one ever came, to
get II.
"Finally 1 decided that the coat be
longed to somebody who had left
school and hud for got to take his
coat witli him. I thought of ashing
the librarian if the coat belonged to
anybody, but 1 didn't like to do that,
because I hud almost decided to steal
it, and 1 knew that if 1 made any In
quiries about it that he would' know
that It didn't 'belong" 'to me.
"One night I said to myself, I'll
just, sit by that coat until the library
closes and if no one conies for the
cont, I'll know that it is lost and then
1 will take it. vSo I sat down hy the
coat and waited, and waited. I nev
er knew time to go so slow. 1 couldn't
stduy. 1 couldn't do anything but sit
side of that coat and think how nice
and warm I would bo if I only hud It.
It ought to belong to me. 1 didn't
have no coat, nor any money to get
one, nnd if the person that this cont
belonged to didn't care enough about
it to tuke en re of it, somebody that
needed it ought to take care of It for
him. I needed it, nnd why shouldn't
I take it? Of course he had left
.school, if he hadn't why should he
leave his coat loyln' around so much'?
Why was it always on this chair? Why
did luHindy ever wear it? Why did he
leave it there
I got so nervous that I couldn't sit
still nny longer, so I got up nnd wnlk
od into the stack room. While I wns
in there I heard the librarian ring for
the llbrnry to close. 1 hurried back
into the other room nnd wont over to
the coat. It was gone. It was gone.
Then I knew thut it did really belong
to somebody in school. nnd I felt
good that I had n'ot stolon it, lie
cause If 1 had It would have got me
intd trouble. I felt pretty blue
though, just as you would feel if you
hud imido up your mind to buy some
thing, and somebody came ami got it
before you did, and there wnsn t un
otlier like it to lie hud.
"I started home. When I got out
onto the library steps I found thut the
weather had changed. Oh, but it wns
cold, the wind was In the north nnd
howled around the corner of the
building like the cayotois at home.
I hated to step out In it, 'cause my
clothes awful thin, mid I have a long
way to go. I almost cried 'because I
didn't have nny coat.
"J never had such ugly thoughts go
through my head before. I can see
now how people get to be thieves.nnd
commit murders, and do all such aw
ful things. Then I remem'bered thnt
T really had no right to the coat If it
belonged to another, and decided that
T wouldn't think nbout the cont ony-more.
"1 didn't go to the llbrnry for sev
eral days, nnd wns beginning to for
get about the cont, when one dny I
heard two young fellers talking, one
of them lniiL'hcd and snid, 'I'll bet
somebody wns.good nnd hot the other
night, f came up here the other even
ing with out nny overcoat, and "while
T was hero the weather ehnngod, nnd
it got colder than blue blazes. T saw
a swell mackintosh hanging over a
eh nh in the library, so when Ihe fel
low thnt was sitting next to It got up
and went Into the stack room, T
not nn ideal woman.
Tlie other quality necessary for the
Ideal womanhood which the fraternity
girl should take as her goal Is that
'love for others, that unselfishness
which we nil recognize ns the most
beautiful quality in any human being.
Herein lies the essence of fraternity
life. We hnve nil felt nt times, how
pleasant It is to know that one of our
I fraternity sisters will be ready to help
ns out oi some niincuiiy, even ni me
cost of n little trouble to herself. Let
us extend this readiness to serve oth
ers to those outside our own mystic
circle, and we will become truer fra
ternity girls n3 we become truer wo
men. '
