Patriotism Ilatapant In a Female College. . Two'years ago the faciulty oi Vassar -College^ji. 1 th'at, for various' reaaohs, 'Washington's , b|r(hday should. .not be. given to the students as a holiday. In 1896, the, day fell upon,, the. last day of the week, aiid so seemed. Jike a 'holiday, in many respect's." But' this year brought it on Monday, and the young lady students of Vassar f61t it an' insult to their patriotism to be obliged to attend, classes, on a,. legal, national holiday. They resolved to. protest against this as a body. ' . About a quarter of an hour before breakfast 'that 'day a 'body of students assembled in the senior parlor, arid started In procession over the ! corrl- .d'ors,.' increasing In numbers .'as- they, marched. • "Atnerka" and- "Yankee Dooftie^" wer^'.^ung •with'a' : ''wlli. :; 'By the ,'tjine the ' pr^qcesBion' passed' qui" of the , front . entrance ^and ,. over , to / t' president's house there were .200 or 800 ' students '• in' > line.

George Washlng'toiu,,. \Then, : returftlng,' they entered the dining-room to the tune of "America/' jj^ulck^^ind ellentiJiands .had transformed the dining-room into a glory 'of "national colors. '• 'A', chalk line was'' "drawn' around : the' faculty table, and 'a screea of flags 'shut them away from the patriotic. ones who were Intent on celebration. The professors were greeted as they entered the class rooms with patriotic songs, and found their classes all' arrayed In Sunday best, some with 'hats 'and gloves on, as If Just ready to leave the college. More than : this, a 'poster -for 'every class was conspicuous -behind the desk. .The French poster announced: ''Qui entre Icl-lalsse Ie-patrlotlsm~deh6rs7.' The algebra, : poster, .was a c|ever computation of ..the re.sults of taking away patriotism from the faculty and adding It to ^h^ . Btudepts. . ". That c of the Greek Class informed, , the poUe'ge that ' the .Greeks loved f raedom and taught honor to those, who freed their country.' "Would thafour' teachers would do the same." ' The psychology poster traced the effect' on thfe mind caused by depriving the students of the 'holiday.

' Almost every day newspaper read" erri see a .paragraph telling how. the government takes care o'f old Comanche, Ouster's 'horse, the Only eurvlvbr of;the Ouster massacre, says the Detroit Free Press. The paragranh: always tells how -by special orders ot the .military, authorities,Comancho is pr6vided Tvlth a comforteble akli, flt- te4 up especially for him, out in l)a- kota. No one, so the story goes, is allowed to ride him, and he is not permitted to do any-Work whatever.

He will go.down to history holding .about as proud a place as that accord' ed'to the gallant black charger that once carried Gen. Sheridan, to the Held in'time to save the battle, twenty miles away." Once all this might have been said with every Indication of truth. The'paragraph,' however, -with various additions and changes, has made the grand rounds Just as regur larly as the good old sea-serpent story. 91111 there must 'be an end to all ^hlngs, anjl the Cpmanche paragraph ought to ]je ended alter this letter: "I mall you today picture of Comanche as he' appeared in-life. ; We do not poesesa any photograph of him ^s ho appeared in i .his stall.
