COLLEGE IMPROVEMENTS. Great improvements are being made In the sidewalks about the college. The \valks around the chapel and in. front of the library are being made over, and it is expected that nearly all of the ·walks about college which are not in first class condition will be made over. The -work is being done by Warren Bros, of Boston, who did the work at the depot and gave very good satisfaction It Is expected that the -walk from the front of the gymnasium to Severance's drug store will be made over, as it is -in very bad condition.

THE FASHION PLATE. The pineapple straws are much used this season both for sailors and alpines. The rage for white gowns for morning, afternoon and evening use is very marked this season. The dominant note of Paris fashions continues to be the lavish use of lace and velvet ribbon on transparent gowns of every color, weave and design. Batiste in lace effects and in embroidered patterns figures largely in combination with foulard silks for vests, revers, fichus, collarettes and other portions of the -bodice and sleeves. Black and dark colored mohairs, no matter how handsomely made, are relegated to the ranks of mere utility gowns. White mohair, however, holds its own among favorite "dress" fabrics. Pale blue in organdie, veiling, batiste, taffeta soyeux' of flexible weave and other handsome summer fabrira in ciel or turquoise tints are among the most fashionable of the colored gowns worn this season. The favor with which the lustrous French cashmeres and silk warp or sheet- all wool nun's veiling were received last season iu evening dress has greatly increased among gowns for general dress wear this summer. Many of the novelty grenadines are revivals of Louis XV designs. The old style iron grenadines in neat canvas checks are brought out again this summer, but the surface is crossed with cho- nille or satin bars. "Bayadere souffle" ia a suggestive name for another of the new fabrics which are not unlike crepon.-- .New York Post. ADAMS. WOOD-- HALU TRAINLOftD OF BRIDES. ?* ?*· TOWN TOPICS.

Van Dyck were driving around the corner of Center and Crandall streets, to the village. It was down grade and the horse was not going fast. Mrs. Van Dvek n a s drningr and sat on the left side of the carriage. As they rounded the corner the left wheel on the front axle of the carriage came off The horse became frightened but was held back. Mr. Van Dyck grabbed the reins and told his wife to jump and she did without hurting herself. The horse went down Center street and Mr. Van Dyck was thrown out near Liberty street. The animal ran and tried to turn at Myrtle street but fell on the sidewalk near F. E. Mole's sore. Emmet Gage held him clov\n while he was unhitched. The only damage done was the wearing of the axle of the carriage. LOST HIS WATCH.

Laat Summer--Pltt»burjf Planning · Great Reception For Them, Brides by the tralnload! A regiment of soldiers coping dtoine with Enough captives of' 3upid la the tanks and among the' officers to start an apartment hotel! \A. trip across the continent for a wedding trip and the biggest, most enthusiastic reception on arrival ever accorded, any newly married couple! This is ! the'fate of the Tenth Pennsylvania volunteer infantry, now somewhere on the Pacific, en route from Manila to Pittsburg, says the New York Herald. Out in San Francisco many a maid is counting the days until the transport Senator comes up the bay. Many a man who has been scorched and tanned by a year's hard fighting is picturing to himself what will happen when the old steamer crawls into her dock and he tries to find a certain young person in the throng. An army paymaster and a minister will do the rest. Marriages in blocks of five and ten are scheduled to take place in San Francisco just as soon as the regiment reaches American soil again. Then, with their new wives, the war worn legions will continue the journey home, j By accident friends of the regiment have learned of the wholesale engagements. The brides were intended as surprises on arrival. Now, however, ' whole families have nerved themselves , for the worst. If a dusky Filipino belle should step from the train, more ! than one bevy of relatives would be i prepared to welcome her as an acces- , sion to the household. They will be spared this effort, however. None of | the boys has had the temerity to wed any of Manila's fairest. They displayed their patriotism in sticking to American girls. For five weeks last summer the Tenth regiment was camped on the outskirts of San Francisco. As a mat- j ter of fact, the city trooped out daily ( to see the eastern volunteers drill and i to admire their soidierllness. The love i of a pretty girl for blue uniforms and brass buttons is proverbial. San Francisco girls quickly formed friendships which drifted into betrothals. i Now, here is where the secretiveness of the average man is illustrated. Not one of these volunteers mentioned the girls when -writing home. They told of camp life, -ofs drills, never a word of sweethearts, but of a thousand and one other things. Perhaps it was Just as well. There were girls at home. But the vanguard of the Benedicts has arrived. Its members bring stories of wholesale weddings that have induced many fathers to figure on the cost of a coast excursion: When Private John D. Fenton, a discharged member of the Tenth, arrived' in Pittsburg recently ' with his San Francisco bride, he gave away the whole secret Private Fenton lay ill for many weeks at Manila with typhoid fever. Upon his recovery he got his discharge and transportation home. He stopped at San Francisco long enough to fulfill J a certain promise he had made to Miss Flora Weiner, % pretty girl who had | carried him delicacies while the regiment waited for a transport a year ' before. They were married by a ' Baptist clergyman and the same even- j ing started for Pittsburg. An old fashioned reception was tendered them at Mr. Fenton's home at United, a little town iu the Connellsville coke region. Some one expressed surprise at the suddenness of the marriage. ' Then Fentan laughed. "Just wait," he said. "I'm only the beginning. The Tenth boys are going to get married in bunches. Why, I know nine from my company that are engaged to San Francisco girls. I couldn't begin to tell how many are in the regiment. I know of three officers who have swell weddings scheduled. "How did it happen? Very naturally. The girls came down to camp every clay while we were at Frisco and brought us all kinds of good things. They say the best way to get at a man's heart is through his stomach. That must be right, for a good many hearts were reached that way. The boys that tried to draw their pay in advance to buy engagement, rings would have filled a battalion. They're all pretty girls--just gaze at my wife, please--and we couldn't help it." Pittsburg is going to give the Tenth a reception unsurpassed in history. The wives will get a generous share of this. A reception committee composed of mothers, sisters and wives of the men who were already married is being formed for the purpose o'f properly welcoming the brides. Special cars for them will probably be provided on the Tenth special, which la to cross the continent illuminated with electric lights, flags and bunting. Colonel A. L. Hawkins and his staff have promised to witness two of the marriages of officers wfth western girls. One is to wed a native of Los Angeles and the other a San Franciscan. The idea of a "quick ceremony" for the rank and file is furthered by the fact that the men will receive a voluminous pay envelope by their muster out at Saa Francisco. They Have Too Many Already. Colorado people should put a guard around the golden girl which they pro-! pose to send to the Paris exposition,' says the Omaha Bee. Some impecuni-l ous foreign nobleman is likely to carry her off.

"Well," exclaimed Millie, "this is quite the most horrid thing mamma could have done!" Fraulein Haussmann of Hanover had a large garden behind her finishing seminary for young ladies, and it was up and down this garden that Millie Warwick was strolling, arm in arm fashion, with her sworn chum, Ethel Bidwell, another English pupil. Ethel waited for further elucidation. "She hag gone and married again!" almost shrieked Millie. "Well, there's no very great harm in that, dear," returned Miss Bidwell. ' 'In fact, it will be rather nice for you.'' "But a stepfather! Oh, it was too bad of mamma!" reiterated Millie. "I am not surprised that she has married again," said Efchel. '' When she came to see you in the winter, she struck me as being almost as young looking as yourself. Indeed I am surprised at her remaining a widow for ten years." Millie went on reading the letter. "Worse and worse," was her next piece of information. "His name is Macintosh, and he's Scotch. Then he'll have red whiskers and a strong accent. All Scotchmen do, don't they? They were married very quietly in Edinburgh, without telling any of their friends. I am to join them at Paris and go on with them to Switzerland and have a jolly, time. Fancy going on a honeymoon -trip with one's own mother!" "Where are yon to join them?" asked Ethel. . "Next Thursday at the Hotel St. Moscow--that's where so many English people go. I suppose Mr. Macintosh can't talk French. Oh, dear, it's altogether too bad of mamma!" There was no consoling poor Millie, and when her friend saw her off to Paris on the following Thursday Miss Warwick still declined to he comforted. "Please take me up to Mrs. Macintosh's rooms," said Millie when she arrived at the Hotel St. Moscow. The garcon, a bold son of Peckham, scratched his head. "Missis Macintosh, did you say, miss?" "Yes, Mrs. Macintosh. I am her daughter." "Well," said the waiter, "I'm sorry to ! ave to inform yon, miss, that there ain't no Missis Macintosh 'ere. There's a Mister Macintosh, what arrived about two hours ago. Probably it's 'im you want?" As she entgred the sitting room Millie stopped dead and would possibly have retreated had not the bold, bad man from Peckham hastily closed the r door and retired, for, sitting by the window, perusing a paper, was a young gentleman of not less than 20 and nob more than 35 yeara of age, irreproachably garbed, dark, clean shaven and not very bad looking. "Ishall be polite, sometimes cordial," Millie had concluded, after debating the matter with herself for many miles, "but on no account affectionate. I shall thus let him know that, while I do not wish to cause any unpleasantness, I shall go my own -way and he will go his." . However. Millie's plan of campaign collapsed like a bubble. When Mr. Macintosh rose from his chair,'Millie collected herself with an effort, and, advancing, held out a little gloved paw. "How do you do, Mr. Macintosh?" abe said. ''Thank you," he replied, after a moment's hesitation, "I am very well." Then, as Millie continued standing, he added, handing her a chair, "Won't yon sit down?" Millie seated herself. "Er--I expected to find mamma here," said the young lady, after an awkward silence of quite a minute's duration. "Oh, I see," replied Mr. Macintosh. Then an appalling idea flashed through her brain. Her mother and Mr. Macintosh had discovered their mistake already. In one short week they had fallen out. They even traveled separately. Doubtless he had married her for her money, and her mother had discovered this. - "I had better not say too much about mamma until I know exactly how the land lies," Millie decided. "I may only aggravate their differences." After n long and awkward pause, Mr. Macintosh suggested that perhaps she might like to look at the English illustrated papers while she was waiting. "I have a bundle ot them in my carry- ,·11," he said. "I'll get them for you." While he was absent Millie reviewed the situation again. - "I hope he won't be as severely polite as this always," ghe thought. "It's evident that I shall have to break the ice. I will let him see that, however he may have fallen out with poor mamma, I intend to bo friendly." Daring tea Millie told him numerous anecdotes about her life at Fraulein Haussmann'a, after which ho retaliated in the gnyes'c fashion with stories of ordjiirsity^ Thus they passed , the time away until the first dinner Bounded. This reminded Millie of the flight of hours. "I had forgotten all abont mamma. When will she be here?" she exclaimed. "Possibly she is blocked on the line," murmured Mr. Macintosh. "At any rate, you had better dine here while 'you wait for \ier." But Mr. Macintosh's careless reference to her mother jarred on her and damped her spirits. Things were evidently very uad indeed. His indifference to his wife's whereabouts was positively shameful. During dinner, therefore, she was quieter, so Mr. Macintosh had to do the lion's share of the talking. And so well did he perform his task that Millie had to confess that her steppapa was a very charming "young man and that: it was a thousand pities he could 'not get on with his wife. "I must try and make the peace," she thought "Meanwhile my best plan will be to he as pleasant as possible-conciliatory, in fact." Inspired by this idea, she made no objection when he suggested a stroll on the boulevards. She insisted on his smoking, she prattled to him while he enjoyed his cigar, she leaned on bis proffered arm and, indeed, made a conscientious effort to impress him with the fact that she was a nice girl and, though a stepdaughter, would not he an incumbrance or a bother to him. And when they got back to the hotel, after a little hesitation, as they were separating for the night, she stood on tiptoe and administered to his brow a pure, daughterly kiss. "Well," observed Mr. Macintosh after she had vanished, "of all the esperi- , ences I've ever had this certainly takes | the cake." ] Now, a portion of the above was told to the present historian by Mr. Dick Macintosh and part by his wife. I have merely interwoven their accounts. The end of the story I also obtained from both, but Diofc's account was the best. Millie was very reticent when relating her share. Millie related her part as thus: "Well, I was nnpacking my things, you know, in order to be able to go to bed, when who should come in but mamma. We hugged each other, and then I said: '' 'Oh, mamma, how could you quarrel with him?' "Mamma looked very astonished and eaid: " 'What are you talking about?" "'Steppapa,' I replied. 'He didn't bring your name up once all the time, and he didn't seem to care what had become of you, and--and altogether he was the last man in the world I should have taken for a bridegroom. But he Was very nice to me.' "'My dear child," exclaimed mamma, 'are you wandering? What person do you refer to? "four stepfather has only just arrived at the hotel. We wrossed this morning. As for quarreling, we are the most devoted couple in Christendom.' Now for Mr. Dick Macintosh's version: 1 "Well, yon see, old man, I received a letter from my Uncle Ned telling me that he had taken a wife unto himself, and would I meet him and the lady at the c hotel St. Moscow in a week's time." On the date named I hied me to Paris, and while I was awaiting Uncle Ned's arrival a young lady was shown in. ! "Well, we both thawed after a time and had a rare evening. She proved the jolliest girl imaginable--talked, , laughed, joked and seemed bent on bei ing as friendly as possible. We had tea, dined, took a stroll and returned to the · hotel. Then, my boy, imagine my astonishment. After she had said good night she reached up and gave me the most delicious kiss I had ever received in the whole course of my existence." In due time the four set off on their tour together, and during the tour Dick and Millie managed to patch up matters so neatly that they came to be quite good friends by the time they returned to England, and about a year after their return Dick took a flat in Kensington and asked Millie to share it with him, such as it was, and Millie not objecting, they were married, and there'I visited them and heard the story.--Answers. Shakespeare and Golf. It is said that Shakespeare's works abound in the most direct and explicit references to the game of golf, several of which have been collected in Miss Wood's recent volume of "Quotations For Occasions." In "Much Ado About Nothing" is an unmistakable allusion to a characteristic St. Andrew's gesture in the words, "I know you by the waggling of your head," while in "Titus Andronicus" is encountered the pertinent query, "What subtle hole is this?" In "Richard III," again, one meets the line. "Put in their hands the bruising irons of wrath," and iu "Henry VI" (part I) the statement "I'll call for clubs." Falstaff's ruling passion was evidently golf, for on his deathbed he "babbled of green fields," and there were certainly links on Prospero's island, else why the question " Why hath the queen summoned me hither to this short grass'd green?" Some commentators prefer the reading, "To tee or not to tee, that is the question." Bnf. apart from this die-] puted passage in "Hamlet" there is a 1 reference to the fault of "striking too short."
