THE HIT'S THE THING.
Pastor Must Carry Earth's Freshnecs

I A minister in these indoor days
needs all the open air he can beg, bor-
row or buy. Consider a moment,
j Through the week his privilege will
j call him into close and curtained sick
i looms sick rooms of the soul, most
of them; he can never go, to any good
J purpose, unless all the clear winds of
heaven and health are buttoned freely
under his coat. He shall have daily
to move among persons whose skies
are perpetually overcast and gray,
whose irritabilities act upon their
friends like a fine, drizzling rain in
N'overvber; he must somewhere have
observed more sunshine than will
ripen a thousand strawberries, and an
evenness of temper that earthquakes
cannot shake. Time and again he will
have to work with people whose out-
look is narrow and their horizon
short; he must somehow have gotten
a vision of distance—of far prospects
and wide adventures; he must have
climbed a hill with a friend that chal-
lenges, he must have driven a canoe
through smoking rapids, he must have
galloped a young horse across green
meadows.—H. D. Gallaudet in the Out-

THE LOST BALL
Golden Opportunity That Cassandra
Xanthippe, Cassandra, Queen Eliza-
beth and Dido were walking along the
Styx one afternoon not long ago and
the conversation between these emi-
nent ladies turned upon prophecy.
With the exception of Cassandra none
of them seemed to take much stock
"Tell me the honest truth now, Cas-
sandra—could you really see into the
future? asked Dido with a skeptical
smile at the prophetess.
I could, honestly," said Cassandra
"How far, Cassie?" queried Queen
"All the far there was," said Cas-
"Humph," said Xanthippe. "Could !
you see as far ahead as—Rudyard I
"Yep," said Cassandra. "I'd read all '

NEWS FROM A SEAT OF LEARNING
A Rural Enoch Arden.
In our little town in a western
state," said Brown, "there was a half-
witted sort of a fellow named Bill
Wilkes. One day Bill took to the rail-
road tracks and never reappeared for
about six years. In the meantime his
wife, Bettie, took in washing and sup-
ported the family. One day Bill came
back. He went around to the kitchen
f'.oor, softly opened it, stuck in his
head and said, 'Boo, Bettie.' Bettie
turned around from her washtub. 'Te
be,' said Bill. 'I scared ye, didn't I,
Bettie?* Wherever I see a stage hus-
band return to his family I think of
Bill's greeting after six years' ab-
sence: 'Boo, Bettie. I scared ye.
A very enjoyable recital whs held
at the down-town studio yesterday
evening. All the parties were much
appreciated, and appealed especially
to the audience which was present.
I he special features of the evening
were ihe selections sung by the Uni-
versity male quartette, which were
rendered with all of their customary
spirit. The program consisted of
selections any the quartette, in piano
violin, voice, and expression. Those
who took part were: Elva McFerron,
Pear] Goodrich, Mamie Miller, Paf-
ford Creecy. Ruth Gelford, Loe Bar-
rowdale, .Clara Belknap, Nina Keiger
and the male quartette.
The Preps won. The Freshmen,
were defeated to the time of 34 to 25. !
In the last class name of the season, I
and probaly the last one on the home
grounds, a battle royal was waged for
the enter-class championship in bask-
et ball. Both teams knew that this
g*me was to be their final one, and
both teams played as if their very
lite hung on the issue. But the
Preps, owing to the slight handicap
which they poss ssed over the Fresh-
men, in players, took the lead from
.the first and won out in what was
the hardest and mo^t fought over
game of the season.
The Preps, as individuals, had the
Freshmen bested. The Freshmen,
however, showed a better team work,
which resulted from more frequent
practice The game started with a
rush and lasted that way until the
end of the playing. During the first
half, roughness and holding were
more prominent than ever. The ball
was chiefly in the Freshmen's terri-
tory, and here hunches were frequent
which brought many fouls. No spec-
tacular plays were made; while the
refree was often forced to count time
on the players. The first half ended
with the score of 1(5-8, in the Preps
In the second half, the Freshmen
started as if to overcome the iead.
But they soon dropped back, and the
Prep camel grew larger. This half
was hut a rougher repetition of the
first, 90 that the score ended 3 to 4 in
favor of the Preps On the Preps'
side, the goal throwing of Parsons
and Reeds was remarkably good,
while the guarding of Castill was the
best on the field; with the Freshmen
I Newby at forward, and Hazeltine at
I guard, were easily the stars. The
I line-up was:
Freshmen; Newby, right forward;
Orr, left forward; Coles, center; Mc-
Reynolds, right guard; and Hazeltine
Preps; Bridgewater, left forward;
Reeds, right forward; Parsons, cen
ter; McCormick, left guard;, and Ca-
still, right guard; Sub. Hutchison.
t ield goals—Reeds 7, Parsons 6,
Newby G, Coles 3, O r 2, and Bridge
