86 THE INDEX. thj-oughout the college year. Beef steak is sampled once per week. One of our senses seems to tell us that the onion is frequently indulged in. Pies and puddings are a rarity, while such a thing as cake is entirely out of the ques- tion. Experimental work is made in cooking at these houses, and so the boarders must suffer the consequence; the hash is but half-cooked, the oatmeal has a me- tallic lustre, the so-called pies are floating upon the juice, the bread has the cojisistency of dough, the toothpicks will have both ends blunt, and everything else necessary to make him think evil thoughts. Having seen that the tendency of the boarding house is toward a lower stan- dard rather than a higher one, we naturally wonder what the coming students will have to eat. They can live upon faith for a while, but that will not last always. What the future will be we refrain to say, but we believe that there is occasion for great rejoicing upon the boarding-house keepers ' part, when he thinks that his resources of oatmeal will continue as long as that crop is raised, but a feeling of sorrow must come over him when he sees the rapid destruction of the forests in the United States, for this means that his hitherto never fail- inj - supply of toothpicks must go. WEIGHTS AND MEASURES, Prof. Walker waits while ' 91, gets measured for uniforms. Foot-ball game. Freshmen wait while Nauss kicks gools. We are all waiting to receive an invitation to Felton ' s wedding the last of June. Brown waits for his moustache to grow. A. N. Stowe waits on a young lady down East street, While Gregory waits on one who lives nearer college. ' 90 measured themselves with ' 91 in base-ball ; found they were a size smaller. Our wait. For a pond to skate on. No more waits in class room. Dr. W-lk-r, after a pause, to Brown, picking toothpicks out of his coat collar. — " Is that Mr. Felt ? " Br-wn. — ' ' It looks like broken toothpicks. ' ' Next man is (]uickly called on to recite. Will Avait in vain. Prof. M y d, hearing of tlie Williston foot-ball game. — " Wish you had got beat so bad you would have never wanted to play foot-ball again. " Prex ' s motto in his detective department, " A patient waiter is no loser, "

Gastronomical Athletics. .BRIIAPS there is nothing connected with college life in which the stu- dents of M. A. C. are more proficient than in this work. But, how could it be otherwise, being called as thej ' are to pass through so violent exer- cise, in what are known as boarding houses, but which might, in some cases, better be termed " refuse dispensaries. " About these boarding houses, we do not know what to say; sometimes we wish that the streets were lined with them, but when we consider how few good meals we have ever enjoyed an undisputed title to, in one of them, we are al- most persuaded that they are not indispensable, and we cannot but believe that the managers of them are trying to hasten on the time when man will be able to exist without eating. Although we do not say but that the food is good enough, what there is of it, we do say that there is enough of it such as it is. But it would be unfair to lay all of the blame upon the keepers of the board- ing-houses, for each boarder has many peculiarities. Watch one of them while he is eating a dinner, and you will immediately be impressed with the feeling that either be has missed meals when he did not design to, or that his digestive system extends throughout the length and breadth of his body. When a student first enters a boarding-house, he feels a little delicate about developing his digestive capabilities, and for this reason he gets along for a while, but after a little while his delicacy leaves him, and it matters not what is set before him, whether hulled coi ' ii or oat meal, boiled rice or tooth-picks, he leaves nothing in his tracks but empty dishes. His appetite is not affected by long eating and so his demand is greater than the supply. Thus it goes ; the student living upon the hope that the next time there will be something better and more of it for him. The varieties of food used are extremely few, and so it would take but little space to give a bill of fare for any boarding-house. Hash is the old standby, although each student is required to eat a plate of oatmeal once per day (85)
