History in the Summer School.
The courses of lectures in history
to be delivered in the summer school
will be specially adapted to the needs
of teachers. The course in colonial
history will be in large measure an
introduction to American history, one
of its chief purposes being to give
an idea of the meanings of that his.
tory. The ordinary facts commonly
found in text books will not be given
i1 narrative form; but an effort
will be made to interpret facts, and
to see the important characteristics
of the time. Several lectures vill be
devoted to the general topic of col-
onization, which involves methods of
founding and administering colonies,
and the reasons for the success or
failure of colonizing nations. The
attention of teachers will be called to
books that are especially helpful and
suggestive. The most useful his.
torical material will be made accessi-
ble to the student.
Roasts Legislature-Made Lam.
Mr. E. Mariner, a prominent cor.
poration lawyer of Milwaukee, Wis.,
has been the guest of Judge Win.
Brown of this city. Yesterday
morning he visited the Law Depart-
ment and made a speech to the fresh-
man class. He told of the mischief
done by too much legislation which
had no value, in recent years. He
praised the common law and declared
it was a mistake for legislatures to
constantly attempt to change it. Ex-
cept in a few instances the rules of
the common law are more fair and
just than the most of the statutes
designed to change them. "Legis-
latures in their eagerness to pass
some law are nuisances.
The Practice Games.

There has been much comment
concerning the title of the novel upon
which Beatrice Harraden has so long
been engaged, and which is at last
completed and about to be published.
It was to have been called, "I, too,
have passed through Wintry Terrors."
This is a line from one of William
Watson's poems. She now has be-
taken herself to Holy Scripture, and
appears to have finally adopted as
her title, "The Fowler."
"Our soul is escaped as a bird out
of the snare of the fowlers.'
The book is to be published by the
Blackwoods, in Edinburgh, and by
Dodd, Mead & Co., in New York.
