A COLLEGE GIRL’S SUNDAY. •ha D«4|H Ckmk ud Darotaa Bar Time to Odd Jobe. ’ "The church of the future li to be womanless as well as manless, judging from the women's colleges,” said the dean of a woman's college, according to the New York Press, “for It Is only by the strictest discipline that we can Induce the girls to attend church. They have all sorts of excuses 1 why they should not attend divine worship and It’s wonderful how many headaches develop Sunday morning.

In front of the postotfice, and the agreement was that he was to keep It In repair, the town to reimburse him for half the expense. “You don’t know What our winters are, but you will by spring," the squire continued, prophetically, “so you’ll have to take my word for It that that fountain cost the town pret’ near 's much's the schools.

I favor the election of Senators by popular vote In their respective States, The constitution provides two methods for Us amendment.. One Is when two-thirds of each! house of Congress submits an amendment to the people. A constitutional amendment to require the popular election of Senators, will never be passed that way, for the simple reason that the Senate will never concur.

UNIVERSAL POSTAL PLANS Amricaa Delegate te lateraelleaal Ceagrcee is Ram Civet Prekakle Oalcem. * Paris Edward Rosewater, American delegate to the International Postal Congress in Rome, who was recently in Paris, talked to a Times correspondent regarding the innovations to bd discussed, including a proposition for a universal two-cent letter rate. He thought the plan that had the best chance of being adopted was that which called for an increase of letter weight from fifteen to twenty-five grammes at the five-cent rate. . Another important proposal, he said, was that relating to chartillons or samples, looking to"the removal" Of restrictions to their dimensions and saleable value, which at present cause great annoyance to the business world. The plan is to allow a maximum value of 820 for samples under the existing rate. Mr. Rosewater thinks there is no likelihood of the introduction of an international postage stump because too many technical difficulties stand in the way. ■
