There are occasionally some quite nowl
ideas developed in the Method Class. One
of our "fourth year" students, a very earn
est, sincere sort of a fellow, had been ex
patlaling upon the habits of the tiger,
when the teacher called upon him to ex
plain how ihe structure of the tiger was
adapted to its habits. He had completed
the list all but one. This hist one was to
show how the Tiger's .structure was adapt
ed to its habit of purring like a cat. lie
cectned rather timid in expressing hi
opinion upon this point, probabh for liar
lest some ono might think that his idea
was not original. All siich fears were dis.
polled, wo presume, shortly after he had
expressed himself as follows- "1 don't
hardly know what peculiarity in the am
mal's struct tue adapted him to this habit,
unless it is the pads upon his feet."
