I have grown so weary of Every Woman’s Encyclopaedia, and in casting about for something else to report on, I found a copy of today’s Daily Illini, the university paper. Mother was about to use it to line the birdcage, but I rescued it and had a look.

Apart from a lot about how the staff of the paper desire distinctive hats, quite a lot about sports, some church information, and a “Campus Scout” column that I cannot make heads or tails of, the paper seems to be mainly advertisements. I have snipped out a few that interested me in some small fashion, and the rest of the paper is now safely inside the birdcage.
