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 ances. Hurvord Crimson.

"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. ' CORNELL'S FOOTIU'LL QAPTATg. For the third time this year the Cornell foot ball team has been forced to choose u new enptnin for the com ing season. Owing to the fact that the Cornell Athletic Council would not ratify the election of E. R. Sweetland becnusos of various charges of pro fessionnllsm which hnve been brought ngnlnst him, R. D.

FACTS ABOUT THE ORGAN. The Exposition Organ, lately bought 'by the ulumnl, is a. thoroughly constructed Instrument, well adapted to ithe needs of the University, with tone qualities covering nearly all the Instruments of the modern orchestra, In volume of tone sufficient to sus tain n large chorus nnd ample for mv auditorium seating three thousand persons, yet no constructed that it may be effectively handled' In, the pres ent ciui'pcl.
