Excerpts from the booklet:

It used to be a scorching September afternoon, and in a
pleasant third-story room of Mrs. Hemp's " Board-

engaged in a full of life dialogue.

They had prepared either beds to fit one among them;
no room-mates ever entertained an identical view
with regard to the location in their beds and had
shifted the terrible lame wash-stand yet 5 occasions, al-
though it had shed a castor at most of these jour-

another, had it now not turn into decreased in conditions.

" i do not see why we could not get at the campus
this yr, anyhow," acknowledged Christine, dismally. " My
father's a Senator ; and, in addition to, he has a white
beard. i do not see how the Registrar dared inform a
man with a white beard that there wasn't room for
