With so many hundreds of miles of newspaper columns to
be filled every day, what wonder that every child of six years
has "seen his name in the paper." American citizens are
reared with the expectation of seeing themselves in print,
every so often, and they wax wroth if they do not. Every
granger who "goes off on a trip" must write a description
back to his country paper. Every little boy, nearly, owns a
printing press. Why, then, need anyone be at loss to char
acterize the American? He is the fellow who uses a printing

About a dozen of the braver freshmen wore canes to chapel
the other morning, and seemed in a state of much trepida
tion lest some ruthless sqphomoie might be sitting within five
seats of them. When chapel was dismissed the sophomores
seemed in a great hurry to get out, but no more so than the
freshmen who hastened through the doorway with their canes
