pleasant time they had had.
After Woods had talked with the old gentleman half an
hour about the weather, street cars, electric lights, the unl
vcrsity, and foot ball, he inquired for the daughter. A pretty
lass of eight summers answered the call. He concluded he
wanted to see a man down town and suddenly disappeared.

The botanical seminar had a pic feed recently. An ele
gant coat of arms properly decorated with "pic canis pie"
and "show me a lit.," and plenty ol pie, awoke memories o!

A Remiaisconco of November 14.
They had walked thus far unmolested, and they expected
to continue. They did not see at first which way they were
to go, but observing the direction which their "hosts" were
taking, they thought they could do no better than follow in
their wake. They walked down hill for a while, then they
walked up hill. They kept on walking. They jumped
across a ravine without being much spattered by the muddy
water which trickled through it, and which was fast turning
to ice in the cold air. They broke their way through a
straggling sort of hedge up on the opposite bank. They
went over a barb-wire fence two batb-wirc fences holding
mem open tor the ladies of the party to pass through. Then
they walked on some more, while the freezing wind howled
and whirled around them, chilling them to the marrow. Sud
denly they were stopped by a man standing directly in their
way, and demanding a quarter. They gave it wondcringly,
and then stopped to collect themselves and look around.
Before them was nothing but a bald streak of prairie not
level prairie, but rolling up and down. The only things to
break the view were the thick growths of weeds ol unequal
height covering the prairie as far as the eye could see, and
two pairs of poles stuck upright at some distance apait, with
cross-bars about halfway up their height and with slippery
grass, weeds, and slopes between them. A short distance
from these poles, were perhaps six rusty looking benches.
Nobody sat in them it was too cold; but around lounged
about fifty people with open mouths and staring faces.
Between the pairs of poles, children were playing tag. This
was all there was to be seen for miles around. The approach
ing party looked and wondered. "What is this that we've
come to, any way?" "This, ladies and gentleman," came
the reply, while a smile of pride lit up the countenance of the
speaker andjwas reflected on the faces of the onlookers, "this,
ladies and gentlemen, is the Crete football grounds."
