The Man with the “Million Dollar

associations between the name and
the face,” said Mr. Rennick.
Mr. Thompson was then introduced

If any of the girls have gone to
Physics Lab. or Chemistry Lab. for
the past week or so, they could not
help but notice a little room in the
basement. This room has a little
light in it, a comfortable-looking
eouch, and is attractively and thor
oughly furnished in every way.
“What is it for?” is the question
asked by several students. And this
is the answer—The room between
the girls’ basement and Physics Lab.

Each period in the day a girl is :in
this room acting as hostess to any

Samuel Johnson, one of the most
eminent English writers of the 18th
century, was born at Lichfield, Sep
tember 18, 1709. His father was a
magistrate and bookseller of some
note in Lichfield. Samuel had in
herited from his ancestors a scrof
ulas taint which marred him horribly.
Johnson acquired great knowledge
from poring over his father’s books.
His family had now sunk into al
most hopeless poverty. Old Mich
ael Johnson could not afford to
send his son to college, but Samuel
went to college, relying upon the
promises of a wealthy neighbor.
However, his father died: the
neighbor did not keep his promises
and Johnson was forced to leave
college without a degree.
To procure a living, Johnson now
became usher in a school. Dis
gusted with the ill treatment, re
ceived here, he left and was next
employed in translating for a book
seller. While Johnson was leading
this vagrant and miserable life, he
fell in love and married a widow,
Mrs. Porter brought to Johnson
a fortune of £600. ' Relying upon
this capital he opened a classical
boarding school, but procured only
three pupils, one of whom was the
celebrated David Gai’rick.
Disappointed in this enterprise,
Johnson started in company with
Garrick for London. Here he lived
and became very intimate with Rich
ard Savage. At his death, Johnson
wrote “The Life of Richard Savage.”
Johnson died December 13, 1784,
and a week later his body was laid
away in Westminister Abbey, among
the eminent men of whom he had
been the historian,—Cowley, Dryden,
Gay and Addison.
Works of Johnson include, “The
Variety of Human Wishes,” “Eng
lish Dictionary,” “Lives of the Poets,”
“The Idler,” and “The Rambler,” two
