M. Stuart Macdonald, Ph. D., of Cornell University, was elected professor of Economics and Political Science, his term of service to start with the opening of the next scholastic ytar. His work will be largely thai of the new course in Commerce and Finance. He was born in Canada and gi-aduated from Dalhousie College, with high honors in 1900, receiving his master's degree a year later. He then entered Cornell University for further post graduate work securing the Sage Scholarship of $300 annually for two years and the Sage Fellowship of $500 the third year, at the close of which course he received the Ph. D. degree. Since then he spent three years in the great Canadian North-West in business helping to develop the marvelous resources of that virgin region. One year he served as principal of the public schools of Whycogomach, N. Y., one year on the staff of the George Junior Republic, Litchfield, Conn., two years as instructor in Philosophy in McGill University and four years as Professor of Political Economy and Philosophy in the University o,C New Brunswick. He comes recommended in the very highest terms as %. good scholar, successful teacher, and a Christian gentleman of the-"highest type. The college is considered very fortunate TOOK CLOTHES OF HiS STEP-FATHER Leo Darr Takes Pilfered Garments ta his Grandfather's Home but is Soon Captured there by Gonstt- ble John C. Shealer. LETTERS FROM COUNTY With three large buildings crammed full of interesting exhibits the second annual exhibition of the Biglerville Agricultural, Horticultural and Poultry Association opened this morning. Almost twelve hundred birds are on exhibit in the large main building, conceded by the owners of the poultry to be far superior to similar buildings used by the shows in the nearby cities. Chickens, of numerous varieties and fine appearance, are displayed by the hundreds; the duck section is far ahead of last year, as is also the portion in whirh the turkeys are exhibited. The pigeons and guineas are interesting as ever and the show a great credit to the county. The cooping system has been a subject of much favorable comment from all the exhibitors who are also pleased with the other arrangements, complete in every detail. Stealing his stepfather's clothes and turning the garments over to his grandfather, Leo Darr fell into the clutches of Constable Shealer and is now reposing in the care of Sheriff Thompson awaiting trial at January term of Court. The alleged criminal is aged about 12 years. Young Darr paid a holiday visit to the home of his grandfather, John Sponseller, south of town and, in return for kindnesses received there, evidently intended to furnish his relative with some extra clothing. One morning this week, after his stepfather had left the house, the youth dropped his parent's best clothing from an up-stairs window to the porch below, then went down, without arousing the suspicions of the other members of the family, and picking up the bundle, started for the direction of Harper's Hill and his grandfather's Adams County's far-famed apples home. -Ypur Horses, Use Dr. Hudson's Liquid Conditioner The Results will please you.

This committee shall co-operate with the college authorities in securing the funds for erecting and endowing an infirmary, and shall co-operate with the Building- Committee in preparing- and submitting the necessary plans for its erection. The following other duty is also imposed upon this committee: "To see that the style of architecture of Pennsylvania Hall be copied as far as practicable in any new college buildings, all to form part of a harmonious and comprehensive plan for future expansion". Dr. Himes Resignation The resignation of Dr. John Andrew Himes as Graeff Professor of English Literature and Political Science was accepted, with regret, to laKe effect with the end of tne presen scholastic year, in June 1914. The resolutions accepting Dr. Himes' resignation provided that the board ''place on record our great appreciation of the high Christian character, scholar- y ability, and faithfulness of Pro- 'essor Himeb, manifested in all his ifc and work during his long connection with the institution". The board also expressed its regret at the nability at the present ume, owing ;o a lack of funds, to provide an adequate pension for those professors who after long and useful service retire from active work, either because of advancing years, or to secure time and opportunity for quiet study and research. Dr. Himes was elected on Tuesday professor emeritus to serve without salary as an advisory member of the faculty, taking effect with the year 1914-15. Dr. Himes is the oldest member on the faculty, in point of service. lie graduated from Gettysburg in 1870 and from Yale a year later. From 1871 to 1873 he was a tutor in Stevens Hall, also teaching- physics in the former year. In 1873 he was made Graeff Professor of English Literature and Political Science which position he has held ever ,sincc. When Dr. Himes retires in June he will have served the college for forty three years continuously. New professor Elected Henry Robinson Shipherd, of Harvard University,'was elected to succeed Dr. IIim«s, his term of service commencing with the opening of the next scholastic year. Prof. Shipherd graduated with honor from Harvard in 1908, having assured by competition three scholarships during his course in that institution. He is a member of Phi Beta Kappa. From 1908 to 1910 he was instructor in English in the Francis W. Parker School, at Chicago. From 1010-1014 he appears on the faculty list of Harvard College as assistant in English. His post graduate work in Har vard Graduate School has been ii in securing a man to look on plates and in boxes are attractively displayed in the second of the three buildings while specially fine potatoes, placed in competition, are to be found at the same place. The building houses the attractively arranged and gaily decorated booths of a number of business houses and Biglerville's further enterprise is to be seen in the refreshment stand being conducted by the ladies of the Library Association. The third building houses the corn Targest after the nterests of the course in Commerce and Finance who has had such a rich experience in both the practical and the theoretical side of the work nvolved. Other 'Business The fraternity dormitory house question did not come before the meeting. The athletic council was increased from three to six active members. John F. Dapp was elected as the first member from the Board of Trustees; Harry J. Stabler was appointed as an additional alumni member to serve until the next meeting of the alumni association; and Clyde A. Fasick as an additional student member, by virtue of his office as president of the Athletic Association. Beginning with the year 1915-1916 the annual tuition and general fees will be increased from $80 to $100. Other minor changes in the fees were authorizprl The college year was reduced from thirty six to thirty five weeks, the first semester beginning on the third Wednesday in September and the college year closing with Commencement Day on the second Wednesday in June. The faculty resolution forbidding all forms of hazing was adopted by the board, hazing beini* 1 defined as 'severe practical joking involving physical personal injury and bodily harm, or the performance of any humiliating action entailing- surrender of dignity and self respect". The definition adopted is taken from Funk and Waprnalls Standard Dictionary. The name of the chair held by President Granville was changed from "President and William Bittinyer Professor of intellectual and Moral Science" to "President"; and the chair held by Prof. C. F. Sanders was changed from "Professor of Philosophy" to "William Bittinger Professor of Philosophy and Education." MRS. NOAH SHEELY Mrs. Noah Sheely died at half past 'our o'clock Tuesday afternoon at her loma near Cashtown from pneumonia aged 73 years. Mrs. Sheely's maiden name was Miss Rebecca Mcllvaine. Her husband died in July 1907, and she leaves nine children, Mrs. Mary Rebert, of ashtown: Mrs. O. A. Stockslager, of Philadelphia; and the following at home, Edward Sheely, Miss Blanche Sheely, Daniel Sheely, Miss Alice Sheely, Miss Hettie Sheely, Robert Sheely, and Andrew Sheely. She also leaves two sisters and two brothers, Mrs. Sara Fissel, of Kansas; Mrs. Mary Reary, of Missouri; Luther Mc- llvaine, of York; and Monroe Mcll- vaine, of Indiana. exhibit which is the largest of the kind the county has ever seen. This building also has the cars of a number of automobile exhibitors and is being eagerly sought. All three structures join- each other closely and the arrangements could not be more convenient for visitors. The officers of the association are to be seen here and there looking after the comfort of visitors and exhibitors. Eli Garretson is on hand to give everyone a warm welcome, to direct them about the show and extend all the courtesies of the association. Harry E. Bair, of Hanover, may be found in the poultry building where he is in charge. The taking care of the birds is an enormous task but Mr. Bair and his assistants are getting away with it in the very finest sort of shape. Chester J. Tyson, as superintendent of the apple department, and Curtis Peters, as superintendent of the displays of corn and potatoes, are eager to extend every attention to those visiting their portions of the show and visitors arc sure to be well taken care of, no matter in what portion of the "fair" they may find themselves. Immediately after the formal opening of the show at nine o'clock this morning the judges got to work with the idea in view of completing their tasks in as brief a time as possible, consistent with good and fair work. C. C. Cornman, the poultry expert of Carlisle, and F. G. Wiles, of Telford, are busily engaged in judging the poultry. The long aisles of coops are receiving their attention and the task proves to be a heavy one. For the apples F. M. Fagan, of State College, is the judge, while D. N. Minnick, of Chambersburg, is judging the potatoes and W. E. Hanger, of College Park, Maryland, the corn. All are recognized as authorities in their respective lines and their decisions will doubtless be received by victors and vanquished with equal satisfaction. The poultry building is much larger this year than last and visitors are p.ot crowded in any 'vay in going up and down the "streets". Similar extra room has been furnished in the other buildings and the show is proving not only a pride and a satisfaction to exhibitors but a convenience and a point of interest to spectators as well. Arriving there he displayed with no little pride the pilfered garments and was in the act of trying the shoes on his grandfather when Constable Shealer stepped in at the door and placed the youngster under arrest. Justice Harnish on information made by the stepfather, Jacob Darr, turned him over to Sheriff Thompson after a hearing. The boy has given tht local school board many an annoying evening and his name has frequently been the signal fui* a n £ X t v i i d e d u l s s - ·f Interesting Mews Respective Towis. and Many Brief Hem.
