There are 2,850 books In the library, and
COO at the farm. The number is constantly
increasing. The demand for books and
for the best books Is growing significantly
larger every day. Professors give their
classes longer lists of references than
heretofore and there is more looking up
of authorities and sources. The great
and unanimous complaint is tltat the
library is not accessible in the mornings.
If the faculty could make some temporary
airaiigemiMit by which the library could
he open, say from nine to twelve every
morning, until Iho rogentt. can appoint a
regular librarian, it would bo a boon to
the students. AVJirm a man is referred to
a-'mo work in the library lie would find It
an easv mailer to step in between classes
and look il up, or during a vacant hour,
while very few will conpj down from their
distant rooms to tho library in the alter,
noon in search of a single point. The
reading, too, which can lie dono or could
bo dono in a vacant hour of the morning
amounts to a grout mass during a. tomes
tor. As to order, the advantage of a quiet
nook to read ors'udy would bo sufficiently
appieciated by sludonls, young or old, lo
warrant quiet behavior. Moved by com.

a monster cat came plunging in over tiio

wor startled, slightly, the ladies screamed
and said, "Oh, my I" Professor smiled
quietly, and looked out into the hall to
sec whence came the animal. The hall
was unoccuple.l. He then looked at tho
cat and the class looked at the cat and
altogether, considering tho suddenness of
her arrival, it was very embarrassing for
tho poor thing. But she recovered her
thoughts presently and was sufljurcd to
