The second try-out for this year's
Classical club will be held in the
auditorium of U-hall at 4 o'clock this
afternoon. The first try-out, held last
Friday, brought out an unusually large
number of candidates. However, Di-
rector Kenyon does not wish to assign
the parts until all who wish have had
opportunity to prove their ability.
The trial for places on the cast is
in two parts, since they must show
ability in the reading of Greek and
English. For the chorus parts Greek
is not necessary, though some knowl-
edge of it is desirable.

Business Strong
Despite Politics
Over Production Out of Question,
Says Latest Report of Brad-
street's Journal
New York, Nov. 6.-The latest re-
port of Bradstreet's Journal states
that the condition of business for the
past week has been one of little or no
political excitement. The presidential
campaign has been a neglible factor
in relation to business, the volume of
which is of unexampled proportions.
Over-production is still out of the ques-
tion, as the country's plants are un-
dermanned, and at the same time con-
sumption is of enormous volume.
Large Area in Winter Wheat.
Prices and weather conditions sug-
gest a large, if not record-breaking
area in winter wheat. Especially large
gains are shown in Kansas, Oklahoma,
and Nebraska. The grain trade looks
for less oorn than the government
crop report indicated. Due to the
scarcity of cars the movement of grain
is restricted, but prices are the highest
since civil war days.
High Record Clearings.
October set up new high records in
bank clearings, the total for the month
aggregating $25,438,545,306, a sum
12.5 per cent larger than the hitherto
monthly record total made in Sep-
tember. Twenty-six important cities
set up new high monthly records,
while New York and vicinity reported
new high levels in October.
Active Trade in Canada.
Wholesale trade in Canada is very
active, orders exceed production, and
it is becoming hard to obtain goods.
Traveling men are sending in large
spring orders for dry goods, but high
prices in general tend to produce a
more cautious attitude, and the high
levels may restrict consumption. Al-
most every commodity commands a
higher price than it did previous, and
because of this many things are im-
ported from the United States. Busi-
ness failures for, the week terminating
with Thursday last number 24, as com-
pared with the 20 of last week.
All Writers Firm in Belief That Force
Must Be Used to Prevent War
Congressmen all over the United
States are concurring with the pro-
posed scheme of world statesmanship
to prevent a repetition of the present
war. President Taft, of the League to
Enforce Peace, is in receipt of many
letters from congressmen, and all of
the writers are firm in the belief that
only through force can peace be main-
Henry T. Rainey, representative
from the Twentieth Illinois congres-
sional district says in a letter to Taft:
'This is an age of force. The millen-
nium has not yet arrived; and condi-
tions which may prevail then are too
remote to be considered at the present
time. Peace in the world can only be
maintained by force."
The central west is thoroughly in
favor of the league and its work. N.
E. Matthews, representative from the
Fifth district of Ohio, says: "It is to
be regretted that the league was not
perfected years ago. Assuredly after
the present war ends will be a proti-
tious time to form such a league and
it is not too early to commence the
"I certainly favor the plans of your
league for the enforcement of peace,"
writes Merrill Moores, representative
from the Seventh district of Indiana.
George A. Loud, representative
from the Tenth district of Michigan,

asserts in a letter to the league:
"Whether successful in the fullest
measure or not, it is plainly an ef-
fort in the right direction and should
meet with the approval of all the
world powers and of all just, reason-
able and thinking men."

Old Huron JMills
Full of Mystery
Ann Arbor Pioneers Built Structures
Before Time of Oldest Liv-
ing Inhabitants
If you should ever happen to roam
up the banks of the Huron river one
of these days in late autumn, while
Indian summer is lingering in the
frosty lap of November, you might be
surprised to find many of the pictures-
que remains of the work of the early
pioneers of Michigan.
While Detroit, Mackinac Island, and
Sault Sainte Marie hold the distinc-
tion of being the first cities of Michi-
gan, and with Vincennes, Ind., and
Chicago, of being the oldest in the en-
tire central and northwest part of the
United States,- nevertheless the places
around Ann Arbor are among the first
actually settled by the white men.
These early pioneers cleared the
land, made roads out of trails, built
mills along the river, and constructed
lime kilns in the ravines of the small
streams and tributaries of the Huron
Even today, if you wander along the
Huron river, you will find the crumbl-
ing remains of old lime kilns, that
look like ruined towers. Old settlers
who have lived in Ann Arbor for-over
seventy years say that they were fal-
ing to pieces even in their day, and
were never in use in the recollection
of anyone they ever knew. From these
facts, it appears that they were first
built more than a century ago, and
perhaps, are even older than this.
In 1905, the old Delhi mills, situated
about eight miles up the river, were
sold and dismantled by a land company
It is thought that the old mills which
were among the first ever built or
operated in the northwest territory,
had been in operation well onto 80
years, and in that time had supplied
the frontiersmen, and Indians, with
corn, oat, and wheat flour. All along
the Huron, may be seen the ruins of
old dams that in some time long past,
had served to keep the water back for
the old mill.
Ann Arbor is abounding in all such
historical, and picturesque things, from
lonely gravestones, in solitary mead-
ows, to strange wierd houses, shops,
and windmills, built by some person,
who, perhaps had a grudge against
Chemistry Department Gets New Still
A new Barnstead still has been re-
cently added to the chemical lamor-
atory equipment which entirely elim-
inates oil particles heretofore car-
ried over in the condensation process
of steam.
In the process of distillation, steam
is condensed directly from the boiler
house. Since the installation of the
new power plant a small amount of
oil has been transmitted to the distill-
ed water rendering it unfit for use in
high degree accuracy tests. The new
still has eliminated this difficulty.
Hold India Education Meeting Tonight
A meeting will be held this evening
at 7:30 o'clock in room 203 of Uni-
versity hall, the purpose of which is
to form an association to promote the
cause of education in India.
President Harry B. Hutchins, Dean
Vaughn, Professor Hildner, and Super-
intendent Sauson of the city schools
are expected to speak.
M. S. Hardikar, grad., of Bombay,
will deliver an address on "Education
in India."
Prof. Brumm Addresses Century Club
Prof. J. R. Brumm, of the rhetoric
department, delivered an address be-

fore the New Century club of Detroit,
last Friday. The subject of Professor
Brumm's address was, "The Reading
of Fiction."
