The smell of the newly flushed gut-;

The splash of yellow mud on the flanks
of the pop corn vendor's horse.
The woman with the carmined lips
gazing at cheap jewelry in a

awning of the fish market.
The man with the violin case fum-
bling with the geranium in his
The beetlebacked cabsrthat shuttle

The stars like dog tooth violets
through the pall of factory smoke.
The girl with the red shawl carrying
a cabbage wrapped in newspaper.,
The drone of sewing machines trick-'
ling down the musty stairway.
The rumble of the truck sucking in
the curb chatter likel an octopus.
The gas light whimpering over the
entrance to the cheap dance hall.
The crowd of half wild children pok-
ing sticks at a dead sewer rat.
The fog fingers groping slowly down-
ward to choke the city silent.
Today the Senior Engineer asked
if Moe's barber shop was the Land
of the Golden Fleece.
Going to Ypsilanti the other day on
the street car I noticed a sign on one
of the normal school buildings, "Post
No Bills." A little farther on I came
to another one, "Postum." Isn't hu-
man nature funny?

ARE YOU A FLOATER?
the industrial world there is
class of men known as floaters. They
apply for positions when positions
are plentiful, and when they
have accumulated a little money they
leave. They idle their time away until
their money is gone, and then they go
once more looking for work. They
drift from city to city, aimlessly
wandering, and do not stay six months
in, the same place. Every city knows
The trouble is that they have no de-
finite purpose in life. They do not
know what they want, they do not
plan out their future, and before they
realize it the future has arrived and
they are broken men, whose lives have
been useless and wasted.
It is never too early to make plans
for the future. The man who succeeds
is the one who always has his eyes
on the distant goal. How many of us
can say this of ourselves?
Many regard their college life as
merely a continuation of their school
days. They intend to take life serious-
ly when they get out into the world.
They do not realize that their univer-
sity training may play a large part
in their lives, and that this training
will be all the more valuable if they
have some definite goal in mind at all
A university does not give a man
a-n education. It gives him the oppor-
tunity to learn, and a student who is
not seeking an education will never
find it. The floater in college is not
seeking education. "Getting through"
is his main interest. But the man
with a purpose in life, the man who
really wants to make something of
himself, will get out of college unlim-
ited benefits, not only from his books,
but from the friends he makes, from
the part he plays in university life.

The Bottle Imp Saleth:
I stepped into the baker shop,
It was a lot of fun
For it was very plain to see,
Ye baker had a bun.
Then I went out to the street
And looking down the road
I saw a drayman drawing nigh
Who had an awful load. a

A pompous deacon's own dear wife
Had three sheets in the wind.
Flickerings of Rural Life

While dusting off the chandelier in
the kitchen yesterday afternoon Con-

curry comb which was laying on the
step ladder and fell upon several
loaves of his wife's freshly baked
bread, breaking his hip. The bread
was damaged a little.

of answering the question. The top
section of the pole which must be re-
placed is 35 feet long, with a base
diameter of seven and three-quarters
inches and a top diameter of four
and one-half inches. This shaft should
be made of white pine and while the
University has been able formerly to
obtain one from the Toledo Shipbuild-
