whose pad one person may stand
floating on the surface of the water.
This pad measures eight feet across.
"All household washing is done in
the streams, and the scrubbing is done
on stones near shore. About noon one
may see the natives, old and young,
splashing about in the rivers. This
is their daily bath, and as the temper-
ature never varies very much this
can be seen at any time of the year.
They never bother to change their
clothing, but just let it dry as they
work after they have come out of the
water.
"These people are wonderfully suc-
cessful in handling the natives on the
islands in their hands; they keep them
ignorant, healthy and happy, but it is
doubtful if America or England would
ever care to adopt the Dutch system
of colonization."

Otis-man.VallClub
Disbands Itself
The one-man baseball team is no
more, "Rupe" Mills, former Notre
Dame first sacker, has come to an
agreement with the officials of the de-
funct Newark Federal league club and
is now playing regularly with the
Harrisburg team of the International
league.
Mills signed with the Federal leag-
uers last year at a typical war-time
salary and when the outlaw organiza-
tion gave up the ghost this spring, he
found himself with a fat contract and
no team to play with. The Newark
management offered him an Interna-
tional league berth, with a much small-
er salary attached, but this the former
collegian refused. His contract was
iron-clad and the magnates despaired
of breaking it. There was only one
'chance left. The big first sacker must
be discouraged. from performing his
portion of the contract.
The document called for a certain
number of hours of ball playing every
day during the season. The magnates
demanded that the player fulfill this
portion of the contract. So every
morning and every afternoon found
"Rupe" Mills at the deserted Federal
league park in Newark, bouncing the
ball off the grandstand or batting out
long flys to imaginary outfielders.
Sometimes he would have an army of
small boys to assist him in his daily
labors, other times his vigil would a
lone one. But he has given in at last
and the world's only one-man baseball
team has passed into history, along
with such items of baseball lore as the
sacrifice strike-out, the home-run hunt,
and John Anderson's famous steal of
second base with the bases full.
ALBERT M. TODD, OF KALAMAZOO
GIVES LIBRARY RA RE BOOKS
Valuable Medical Volumes, Fine Ex-
ample of Early Printing Among
D)onation
The Hon. Albert M. Todd, a Uni-
versity alumnus of Kalamazoo, has re-
cently presented the Library with a
valuable collection of old medical
books. These books are interesting
both from an historical standpoint
and as excellent examples of early
printing. The printing of all the books
is very clear and in an unusually good
state of preservation. There are some
woodcuts and interesting illustrations,
as for instance the illustrations of
apparatus in "Das Buch zu Distillie-
ren" of Braunschweig.
One of the oldest books in the col-
lection is the first edition of Galen's
works published in Greek in 1525
by the Aldus Sons of Venice. There
is also a second edition published in
1538, in Basel, Switzerland. There is
a copy of the third edition published
in Latin by Froben, of Basel, in 1562.
There is a copy of Tacitus published
at Rome in 1500 and since beautiful-
ly bound by Sangorski and Sutcliff, of
London.
Two interesting books are "Das
Buchzu Distellieren"of Braunschweig,
published in Strasburg in 1527, and
the "Canons of Medicine," of Celsus,
published in Leyden in 1788.
There are several volumes on alch-
emy, among them the "New Light on
Alchemy," by Sandivogius, published
in 1650, and the "Secrets of Alexis of
Piedmont," published in 1562. The
collection contains a copy of the third
edition of Aristotle's works published
in 1551 by the Aldus Sons.
Mr. Todd also presented the Library
with two large volumes of Sharpe's
"Monograph on Tropical Birds." I

The Hon. Mr. Todd has been for
some years a member of Congress.
Besides the fine library from which
the gift comes, Mr. Todd has also a
fine collection of paintings, and some
time ago presented the museum with
an Egyptian mummy.
Prof. A. S Whitney Out of Town

tional department, is spending the

tawa Beach.
