','TAKE  A STRAP TO HER."  According  to  Scotch  law,   as  just  .expounded by  Judge McKcIvie,       of  Leith,  "if a woman requires  to     be  chastised   thc hus-haiid  should  take  a  strap to  her and not use his hand.''  The     occasion  of  this weighty' pro  nounccment   was   the   appearance   before him  of one Patrick McManus on  a charge   of   having  assaulted       his  wife.      lu'eiuanus   knocked   her  down  with  his  fists  and  kicked  her  in  the  side as she lay on the ground.  Igrr0r-  anfie of -Uic law is usually  held     to  be  no excuse,   but  apparently   it  sufficed in "Ho Man us' case,  for  after admonishing him to give thc preference  to the strap hereafter, the magistrate  discharged him.

The conditions under which tho  game win be tl.viera'ted have ' been formulated, aad are meeting with.approval .all over thc country. These are  in- a word that football must be reestablished as a sport and forever  killed as a business. This will be  mainly accomplished by purging''the  game of the gate-receipt feature.  Each game will then depend on the  students and alumni of iIs own college to defray its legitimate and reasonable expenses.     Other  expenses  it  must not incur.  Jn an    -admirable statement on  tho  subject Jacob Gould  Shurman, pres-  .(lenl  pf Cornell  university, says-that  the excessive costliness of football as  at   present      conducted is  a      prolific  source   of   commercialism.      gambling  and  professionalism.
