A Canadian inagisti ate has imped-

Last year about 100 students were

about 130 in regular attendance, cer-

the Board of Regents.
Tuition is free, as is also instruction
in music—an unusual and praise-
worthy feature. The faculty is full
and well organized.
Two courses of study are offered:
lirst, the "Introductory," to which pu-
pils from the district schools may ob-
tain entrance; and second, the "Nor-
mal" for older and more advanced
students. The "Introductory," it
seems to us, tills the gap between our
district schools and higher work in
any of our Territorial institutions,
while the ".Normal" is admirably
adapted to the training of teachers.
Special arrangements are made for
the graduates from the public schools
and for teachers who wish to obtain

threatened with a severe attack of
croup. He says: "My wife insisted
that 1 go for the doctor, but as our
family physician was out of town 1
purchased a bottle of Chamberlain's

immediately. I will not be without it

One of the dangers which menaced
iravelers in the early history of Cali-
fornia was an attack by highwaymen.
An old stage driver who drove over a
part of the long line between San Josa
and Los Angeles relates an interesting
Incident of those early days. Ho saysi

ahead at a good speed, with a stage

out for us to stop, and 1 saw a gun bar-
rel gleam in t>'4o moonlight.
The horses were going at a speed
that might be called breakneok, and I
made up my mind to take the chance
of getting through. 1 saw the gun
raised to the fellow's shoulder as we
approached. I had my long whip in
my hand, and with a desperation horn
of the peril of the moment, I made a
ploious swipe at him.
I don't know how it happened, but
the lash wound itself around the gun.
ittd as we dashed by, the whip was
drawn taut. I was nearly pulled off
tny seat, but I held on, and the gun
was dragged out of the robber's hand

moment it was discharged by the shock.'
It rattled along the road for quite a
distance before tho whiplash unwound

A funny little story, with a moral,
comes from Ischl, by way of a London
exchange. Not long ago a lady who
had just arrived from iloumania, took
a stroll to Softens Dopple Blick, a celc
bra ted point of view. There she met a
young married lady, accompanied by
her little girl. The smart, rather over-
iressed stranger was much struck with
Ihe child's frock, which was oxquisitely
embroidered with forget-ino-nots, and
advancing, sho calmly asked the youth-
ful mother whnro the garment was
bought. "I embroiderod all her frocks
tnyself; it gives me suah pleasure," was
the smiling answer. At this a shade of
-cm came on the questioner's face,
and said, with ill-concoaled con-
tempt: "That Is only possiblo with a
very small household. People like my-
self, who have so many visitors, and
move in the best society itavo no time
for such middle-class pleasureC." The
other lady laughed, but returned no
answer, and the fair Roumanian eofc,
tinned boasting until at Inst her henre
said mildly: "I also have to play hostess
occasionally. My father, the emperor,
favors us from time to time with t
visit, and the empress often comcs to
see her grandchildren, as well as many
other members of the imperial ftunllyj
but all tho Rume I have invariably
leisure in the morning hours to do em-
broidery for my little girl." And be
