Tlio Snturdny Evening Post In tin
nrtlolo headed "Earning nn Ediicntion"
has mado a thorough oxnminntton of
tho cost of attending the leading uni
versities and colleges of tho country.
Tho following questions were- sent to
the presidents of tho various schools:
1. In your opinion, taking all things
Into consideration, is tho student pay
ing his own way prevented thereby
from accomplishing tho best results?
'2. Is tho unlimited supply of money
HUoly to be a handicap to the nverngo
H. Of two students having equal abll
it. os, which has tho bettor chance for
college success, tho one with much or
the one with little money?
To tho first question many replied
emphatically in the negative, while
others believed the student paying his
onn way is likely to bo hindered from
accomplishing tho best results unless
he bo of unusual energy and mental
and physical power.
There was practical unanimity on
tho second quest. on, over ninety-eight
per cent of those sending replies be
lieving emphatically that an unlimited
amount of money was a handicap to
the averago college student. Many be
lieved it was worse than a handicap.
Along the same lino as tho opinion
of the second question, tho largo major
ity boliovo that of two students of equal
ability, tho one having much money Is
likoly to be less successful than the one
Tho concensus of opinion is that the
student depending entirely upon him
self requires so much energy for out
side work as not to accompl.sh the best
results. Tho one having just a com
fortable allowance is the one who has
chances most in his favor. The re
spondent from the University of Mich
igan is of the opinion that "above ?G00
a year is likely to be disadvantageous."

A TRUE STORY.
Porhaps tho highest compliment over
paid to tho writings of William Reed
Dunroy, tlio Nebraska poet, was that
paid unconse'.ously by a servant girl in
Omaha. This girl worked in a family
where tho lady of tho house spent tho
greater portion of the summer at the
exposition. During the day the girl
was left alone pretty much all of tho
time and was allowed to amuso herself
as sho thought best.
Ono day tiie woman came home
oarllor than sho expected and sho found
I tho servant girl at her desk in tho li
brary, writing as fast as sho could. She
did not hear her mistress outer, so
busily engrossed was she in her work,
and sho started suddenly as tho lady
spoke and tried to hido tho tablet on
which sho had been writing. Tho lady
stopped forward and saw that tho girl
had a copy of "Corn Tassels" before her
on tho desk, and an examination of the
girl's tablet showed that sho had copied
nearly every poem In tho book. Tho
Indy In speaking of the occurrence
afterwards said that she was deeply Im
pressed with what sho had scon. Thoro
the girl, who could write only with ex
treme difficulty, had spent hours In
copying the poems from tho book, and
sho said sho would gladly have given
tho girl a copy of tho book if another
one could have been obtained.
THE OLD SITES OF YALE.
Until recently almost no attention
has been paid to the historic sites
which mark tho early days of Yale uni
versity. As li1" was founded in old
Saybrook and later removed to Bran
ford, both these towns have a place In
Yale tradition. A meeting was re
cently held In the Acton library of Old
Saybrook to make plans for erecting a
suitable momorlal on the site of tho
building where tho "Yalo Collegiate
School" was established under tho Con
necticut charter, granted In 1701. Th!s
building was given by Nathaniel
Lynde of Saybrook for tho use of the
collego In 1702, and was the home of
Yale college for fifteen years.
Professor Hart of Trinity college
and Dr. A. S. Cheeseborough of Say
brook have been at tho head of the
movement to erect a memorial. Pro
fessor Hart presided at the meeting
and was appointed chairman of a com
mittee to take charge of raising the
necessary funds. Tho present plan Is
to have tho dedication held at tho Yalo
bl-centennial In 1901.
NOT EQUAL TO THE EMERGENCY.
Now Cockatoo "Does the girl wo
live with seem clever?"
Parrot "No; I've been here a year
and she hasn't got mo to stop swearing
A BACHELOR'S ROMANCE.
"I came pretty near getting engaged
"Why didn't you?"
"Tho day I made up my mind to pro
pose to tho girl a man came along and
asked mo to go fishing."
"Prosperity brings peace."
"That's so; tho man next door is so
busy now that he comes home at night
too tired to practice on his cornet."
ANOTHER GREAT REFORM.
"What reform aro you interested in
"I am advocating that people be paid
double for the Work they do when ti;ey
don't feel like working."
AHEAD OF HIS RIVALS.
"Dewey is brainy, I tell you."
"Of course But why do you say so?"
"Why, ho got in his celebration be
fore the foot ball season opened."
