THE HESPERIAN STUDENT. VA The University telepono came near do" slroying the friendship which exists be tween George McLean and Don Clark, of the Telephone Exchange, the oilier eve ning. George had just returned from prayer meeting and was sottlingdown for a quiet hour's reading when the little in st nun out across the hall spoke up, long and loud, Tingu-ling-ling ling!! George put down li is paper, got out his keys, and started to see what was wanted, "Hello!" No answer. "HcUoo!!" Still no answer. After u pause he rang up the central ofllco and demanded, ""What do want, Don? Did you call the University V" " N ii-w ! " "Well, the thing rang, anyway," mid George returned to his room; before he could seat himself comfortably again he heard another imperative Ting-a-ling-a-ling-ling-ling-ling!! He started and listened, half believing it was the wind, but another sharp ring assured him that it was tnc telephone. "Hello!" Again he could get no answer, and rang up the central oftlce. "Hello!" "Hello yourself! What is the matter with you?" " What do you want?" " I don't want anything," replied Don crossly. " What did you ring the University for, then?" "I didn't! Havn't rung at all for at least. an hour! " "Well the old thing hns been ringing, and I know it, anil if you don't let up I'll see about it! " shouted George. " Oh, go oil" and soak your head, you've been dreaming," was tbe consoling reply, and here tho conversation ended. Meanwhile, a young man concealed in a dark cornei of tne hall was hugging hiniM'lf over the success of his scheme, nearly choking in his efforts to keep from laughiiig.
