The Sanitary News uses the following terse language concerning the establishment of a hygienic laboratory ia the U. of M.: "The establishment of a laboratory of hygiëne at the University of Michigan marks an advance in sanitary science which is very gratifying. Several medical colleges have recognized the importance of studying hygiëne in connection with medicine, and have established lectureships in hygiëne, but no institution of learning in the United States has before deemed it necessary to establish a hygienic laboratory. That such a magnificent university as that maintained by the state of Michigan should be the first to take this step, augurs well for the future. Prof. Víctor C.

August Tessmer is a lad of only 20 summers, but he is as well versed in the art of winning the affection of the feminine sex as one twice his year?. He has reoently become attached to a short-haired maiden, who wears a little creamcolored boy"s hat. He was not content with the sweet words of love he poured into the young girl's ears seven nights in the week, but wanted to give her a present. Now, August has a mortal fear of work, and consequently his pockets are not lined with shekels. He had no money and couldn't get trusted, but his girl had to have the present ; consequently, to meet the emergency, on Saturday evening he presented an order to a well known dry goods hou -e on Main-st, ing his father's signature, which stated that the firm mentioned should let the boy have what he wanted, as he wished to make his mother a birthday present. All went well while he bought a dress and a few trinkets, but when he asked for a corset and some underwear the olerk's suspicion was aroused. A boy was dispatched to see Mr. Tessmer, senior, who at once pronounced the order a fogery. In the meantime the lad had completed his purchases, amounting to $13.59, and made his way to the home of his lady-love. A warrant was issued for his arrest, but subsequently the boy's mother fixed matters up and no further legal action was taken.
