NOTES AND COMMENTS,
THREE NEW STUDENTS
The Animal Husbandry department
"has recently purchased three York
"shlre hogs for instruction in the
school of agriculture."
Is it possible!
This is reliable information.
It is also a step in the right direc
tion! Congress has made a long stride
forward! She has put on her walk
ing shoes, gathered up her skirts out
of the mud and tripped VI in B Va of
the Higher Education of the Hog.
In distributing praise lor this great
advance too much praise cannot bo
bestowed upon the director of the
School of Agriculture, Prof. Albert E.
Davisson, .A. B. who helped Progress
round up the Hogs.
He had to hunt all over the ten acre
lot for them, wade the creek five times
and crawl about among the brush for
two and a half hours trying to find
tho little Yorkshires. At last he
came upon them way off in tho south
west corner, eating acorns as fast as
they could making perfect hogs of
He spoke to them in gentle tones,
they 8. He entreated them to come
and get their minds developed, they
eight some more. He repeated the
first three and the last two pages of
his best Farmers Institute lecture, it
never phased them, they ate still tho'
Albert E. Davison was mad; he had
missed his Geomitry, History and
Plant Pests classes and it was grow
Ev'en has come and the darkness
Falls from the wings of Night
As a feather is wafted downward
From an eagle in his flight.
This verse is not original, it wa3
written by Mr. Henry W. Longfellow,
but It is a better visualization of night
fall than we could write on short no
tice, and It describes the situation ex
actly.) The crises demanded action on the
part of the Hogs.
The worthy agriculturist emphas
ized the demands of the Crisis with
his cane. The Hogs started off in
three different directions.
Under tho auspices of tho three Hogs
ho lived tho strenuous life. Ho was
a regular Nemesis to those Hogs.
(Wo moan no disrespect.)
Suffice to say that ho finally winded
them and boro them off in triumph.
Night had fallen and tho moon and
stars were brightly shining.

Let us draw a curtain over the nex
hour of suffering which ho endured.

It is true that three is a small num
ber for instruction but as Schakes
beer says "Great oaks from little
acorns grow." Doubtless if tho
"three Yorkshire Hogs" find "instruc
tion in the School of Agriculture"
helpful there will be a rapid increase
in attendance. We wish them every
About two weeks ago we constructed
a fiery article on the evils of working
too hard." Now: we didn't intend
at all that every lazy student
should take this as a "free card" to
shirk, flunk and otherwise refuso to
recite. Furthermore wo do not con
sider reciting work anyway. Recit
ing, after a fellow has his lesson pre
pared, is thrilling oratory.
But that's tho way it goes. One is
not given credit for real obtusness; he
is taken too literally.
A friend of ours, Abbott by name,
general Patrons Pacifier on the Free
mont Herald takes occasion to land
several blows on our "body corporate."
He says we don't know a thing or two;
that our english is bad; our office
dirty and type in need of a new face.
Of course we could easily and profit
ably return his letter and say "same to
you," "merry Thanksgiving" etc, but
we will not do that, we shall merely
say: "We have heard of you."
The fact that our friend Abbott was
a bosom friend of one McNeal while
'.hat being flourished in our midst,
surely scores one. And if our enemy
Mr. Dooley could have seen McNeal's
.rowser's he would have announced a
As a writer of "storiettes" for Mun

lend he ranks nigher, but as a news
laper critic he coinside's with Lin
join's new asphalt pavement.
