Th first definite answer to the question
propounded In the Alumni Weekly several
weeka ago 'as to the average salaries of
Yale graduates has come In the form of
roughly tabulsted statistics from the secre
tary of the class of '08. In a circular letter
to the member of the class sent out last

yesrly salary or Income earned. The ques
tion excluded paternal or other allowances
or Income ' by Inheritance and referred,
merely to the personal earnings of th In
dividual !ii question.
In 150 answer to the question In the
class of 1906, fifty-two men had no per
sonally earned Income during the first year
ut of college, forty-aeven men had an in
come under H.000 and forty-one men had
an Income of over $1,000. For the seoond

salary, eighteen men wcrs receiving Mes

Is to be a graduate department like .the
other Harvard professional schools; and
the specialized training for a business ca

the law school and the medical school,
rests on the basis of a liberal education.
College graduates only will be admitted
as regular atudents, and In addition to tha
general requirement of the bachelor's de
gree for admission, a few definite require

FORT RILEY. Kan.. April 26. fSnecial .)
-There 1 probably no one today in the
active employ of the quartermaster gen
eral a urparrmeni, wno has Had a more
Luring career, or a longer and .nore ac
tive one, than H. M. Daly, rhlcf packer
of the army, with station at Fort Leaven
worth, Kan. Although approaching the
seventieth milestone, Mr; Ialy is still hale
snd hearty and if anyone were to guess
ins age one wouki ve inclined to pvace It
below the sixties. His good health, he
attribute to the many years which he
spent in the open and to the plain and
hardy fare which was his for years white
traveling the length and breadth of the
frontier, from the Sierra Madras in Old
Mexico to the Nee of the Woods in Mani
toba. Although Mr. Dalv has kent a rtlarv
of his daily life since he first service
with Uncle Sam and although he has often
been pressed by officers to publish it he
still refrains from doing so. Some day he
may decide 10 and it Is to be hoped that
he will, for it will be a valuable addition
to frontier lore and without doubt it will
tell soca truths that army records and his
tory nave overlooked.

cetved his education, Mr. Daly came to
this country as a boy. In I8a he became
possessed of a desire to see the great and
unanown west ana striking out from San
Antonio hs insds for Arizona and New
Mexico. 1 He engaged for service in the
quartermaster's department and for two
year hi craving for excitement was satis
fied. Mr. Daly was engaged under Gen
eral McKsnxle against old Chief Cochise's
band up and down the length and breadth
of Out territories, and In ths fights In the
j onio dsshi, tttrawoerry Valley and th
uiragoon mountains, la the latter part
of lo he was also engaged In the Indian
territory and northern Texas against the
K to waa and the Comanchea.
In this year he left ths employ of Uncle
Sam and started still further west. He
traveled through California and for two
years he packed and freighted throughout
the entire northwest. Mr. Daly packed
upiuiea io ana irom ins mines and set
tlernents slong the . Columbia, the Snake.
the Upper Yellowstone. He penetrated into
canaaa as isr a tn week of th Woods,
where Spanish ponies, then favored for
packing purpose, were purchased from
the Winnebago Indians.
In the year of 170 he struck out for the
aoutnwest and again renewed his alien!
ance to the quartermaster department
and this time for good. He took service
under General Crook, the moat famous of
Indian fighters, who wss then engaged In
a ceaseleaa warfare against the tribes of
the southwest. The government had never
had any pack trains of its own, having
hired them when they were considered
necessary. ueneral (rook recommended
that the system be sdopted and Mr. Iiaiy
was imany instructed to organise three
trains to carry aupplles snd ammunition
