Its 52 members, it is claimed, have the
best organization for student govern-
ment that is known. The Wisconsin
Union is under the direct supervision
of the council.
Students of the New York State Col-
lege of Forestry were recently pre-
sented with a small saw mil, by the
American Saw Mill Machine Co. The

mill will be placed at the state ranger
school, at Wanakena. It has a carriage
large enough to saw logs two and one!
half feet in diameter and 20 feet long.
The mill will be placed on trial for
one year, and will then be transferred
to the forestry experiment station, at
Salamanca.

In his address to the legislature,
Governor Rich in referring to the uni-
versity, mentioned the one-sixth mill
permanent appropriation that was set
aside for the university by the last
legislature, and stated that an extra
appropriation would be necessary.
This is pronounced a mistake by the
authorities, as the various faculties
are already looking for appropriations.
The medical faculty asks for an ad-
dition to the anatomical laboratory,
and a hospital annex. There is also
a request for a new chemical labora-
tory and for an addition to the library,
costing $35,000. What will be done on

the women's annex to the gy

In this short, simple little p'lay of
two acts, Tagore has presented an
allegory of different social states and
of life itself. Though brief and
simple, it is refreshing. Touches of
Indian life, customs and scenery, scat-
tered here and there, not detailed
descriptive scenes, but mere hints of
them, give it a varied. richness.
It is the story of an orphan who,
soon after being adopted by his uncle,
is taken seriously ill and is closely
confined to the house. His faith in
his recovery, his plans- for the future
and his youthful 'thoughts are care-,
fully and pathetically given the reader.;
Though lonesome at first, he suc-
ceeds in overcoming this in his deep
interest in passing types of working-
men. To the Curdseller, who, no doubt,"
in the author's mind represented the
busy, hurrying commercial world, he
not only^ brought friendship, but
taught him to find pleasure in his
labor. Likewise, he bore a message to
the Watchman, Headman, and Flower
Girl, who also allegorically repre-
sented types of society.
His final interest centered in the
king of whom he indirectly learned
through the Post Office. This is the
allegory: of life. For when the king
came in accordance with the boy's long
expectation, it was in the person of
Death itself. His was a vain fight
for life, but it was a struggle in which
he found pleasure in encouraging and
aiding those about him.
There is throughout the play a sad,
serious tone, which; however, is oc-
casionally lighted up by bits of humor,
and a truism here. and there. The
other characters, the impatient uncle,
the Doctor, bent upon expounding the
medical scriptures, and the Gaffer, are
interesting and well portrayed. On
the whole, the style is pleasing, and
less is demanded.

"Oh Mary Gray, I rue the day
I first set eyes upon you ;
For Mary Gray, since that same day,
I'm dreaming that I won you.
"At night I sleep not, Mary Gray,
My brain with you is teeming;
I cannot even eat by day,'
But sit, of you a-dreaming.
"My work lies idle, Mary Gray,
Since you my heart inspired ;
And I received just yesterday,
A pink slip saying 'Fired!'
"But job and sleep and appetite,
For them I snap a finger,
If, Mary Gray, just once to-day,
I see your sweet smile linger."
