May Enter Harvard.
A former resident of Cambridge
who is closely identified with col
lege affairs, is authority for the
statement that Prince Oscar, Em
peror William's fifth son and the
next to thd youngest, will proba
bly enter Harvard University as
a student this fall.
The info.mation comes from a
relative of the Cambridge man.
A letter received by him from
Germany today says : "At table
I am sitting opposite the play
wright Fulda He tells me that
the German Emperor takes a keen
interest in Harvard University,
and that he expected to send his
Bon, Oscar, to Harvard for a course
of study. I am not sure, but I
am under the impression that he
said the Prince would go to Cam
bridge the coming fall.' Boston

Mr. Grow was elected to Con

after retirement from public life
for nearly 40 years he re-entered
tae House of Representatives as
Congressman-at-large from Penn

Mr. Grow was elected Speaker
of the. House of Representatives
in 1861 and occupied that position

The Burning of Judas.
Of the many ceremonies of
Easter W6ek the one which most
excites the interest of the stran
ger in Mexico is that of the "Sa-
bado de Gloria," the Saturday
On that day the arch traitor
Judas is held up to public execra
tion by being burned in the shape
of effigies stuffed with fireworks.
The effigies are usually misshapen
monsters and are hawked about
the streets on the days preceding
the "Saturday of glory." The
artificers give free play to their
fancy, and some of the results
are, to Bay the least, astonishing.
Most of the figures have horns,'
claws and other suh appendages.
On Saturday morning the larg
est Judases are suspended on wires
stretched across the street and are
burned amid the wild excitement
of the crowd which gathers to wit
ness and conduct the ceremony.
