Tragedy.
She laid the St. 11 white form be-
side those that had gone on before.
No groan, no sigh escaped her. But
hark! Suddenly she let forth a cry
that pierced the still air, making it
vibrate into a thousand echoes. It
seemed as if it came from her very
soul. Twice the cry was repeated, and
then all was quiet again,—she would
lay another egg tomorrow.

The King of Spain sent for him and
asked:

“Yes,” Columbus answered, “if you flashed off.

“It’s a good thing my mouth is big”,
a starving co-ed remarked in the cafe-
teria the other night when the lights
sisted there was no such place as Am-
erica, but presently the pilot came to
him and said:
“Columbus, land is in sight.”
“Well, itYs America”, Columbus
said.
When his boat neared the shore Co-
lumbus saw a group of natives.
“Is this America?” he asked them.
“Yes,” they replied.
“I suppose you are Indians ?” Col-
umbus went on.
“Yes” the chief answered, “and are
you Christopher Columbus ?”
“I am.”
The Indian chief turned then to his
companions and said:
“The jig is up. We are discovered
at last.”—Paris Pele-Mele.

APOLOGIES TO MR. SUMMERS
During the Fall term the Star ran a
column in each issue under the head
of “Starring”, taking each week one
particular football man. At the end
of the term we thought we had in-
cluded in these articles every letter
man, but later found that Mr. Wylie
Summers had been • omitted. Wylie
made his letter this year, he played
in practically every game of the sea-
son either in the back field or on end.
and did some stellar work on both
sections of the team.
The management is indeed sorry
that Wylie was “lost in the shuffle”,
and wishes to publicly apologize to
him for the oversight.

The Y. W. advisory board met Satur-
day afternoon, January 14 at 4 o’clock.
Only a few members were present, but
determined upon reorganizing the
board. Some new members were elect-
ed to take the place of some old mem-
bers. A nominating committee was
appointed for the ensuing year. Those
appointed were Mrs. Mills, Mrs. Bird-
well, and Miss Sayers. Miss Hearne
reported the work done the past month.

Have you learned that—
The luck that you believe in
Is that which cpmes with work?
And no one ever finds it,
Who’s content to wish and shirk?
The men the world calls lucky
Will tell you every one
That success comes not with wishing,
But by hard work bravely done.

heard remark.
Said Mrs. A, one of the overhearers:
“They must have been to the zoo, be-
cause I heard her mention a ‘trained
deer’.”
S^id Mrs. B.: “No, no. They were
talking about going away and she said
to him, ‘Find about the train, dear’.”
Said Mrs. C.: “I think you are both
wrong. It seemed to me they were dis-
cussing music, for she said, ‘A trained
ear’ very distinctly.”
A few minutes later the lady her-
self appeared and they told her of
their disagreement.
“Well”, she laughed, “that’s certain-
ly funny. You are poor guessers, all
of you. The fact is, I’d been out to
the country overnight and I was ask-
ing my husband if it rained here last
evening.”—Boston Trnscript.
