At a meeting of the Western Gas Associntlon last week in St. Iriuis the University of Michigan got a good advertiseinent for havlng establlsbed a course in gas chernlstry for tlio scicntific education of ;:as engineers. Wuile tlie recent action of :i portion of the studentg, in lowering theinsulves to quarrel wltli circus men, has been ven undue prominencc in the presa of tlie country, vet it is true that the students s a cluss, and the friends of the university all over the country, would feel far better had the scènes never been cnacted. It is altogether probable that the circus that va liere never gave a performance In a university town before, and when they heard theclassyellsof the boys took them for Commanchee war wlioops, and prepared for buttle. One thing ia certain, had tlie mom showt) a partiële of discretion and common sense thcre would have been no trouble. The boys made no attempt ut trouble uutil tlirec or four of their nnmber were knocked down without the least provocation. There have been circuses here every }'ear for a number of years, and tlils is the lirst one that any disturbance has been developed at. They all knew enotiKh to take the college yell simplj-as a yell.and nota cali to battle. It is to be hoped that hereafter the boys will have too raucu pride to engiige in sucli scènes.
