Plans for Academy Smoker
For profoablv the first time in its
long and eventful history, the Harris-
Vmrg Academy will have an "Acade
my night" next Monday, at which the
alumni and former students of the, in
stitution. which owes its origin to John
Harris, the founder of Harrisburg, will
gather and talk over old times. The
arrangements aie being made 'by Dr.
Arthur E. Brown, the headmaster, and
si committee of the younger alumni, an"
every effort has been made to reach ev
ery man who was ever registered as a
student at the Academy.
It is recognized that a school which
has had such a long career as the
Academy must necessarily have some
former students whose names are not
on the lists which have been gathered
in the las! few months, and the commit
tee earnestly hopes that, whether any
former students receive invitations or
not. they will show up at the Academy
on December 28.
Already many of the former stu
dents have announced they will be on
hand. There wilf be reunions of stu
dents who attended the Veademy back
in the sixties and the seventies and the
men of the eighties and the nineties
will be out in force to show the stu
dents of the last decade that their in
terest in the old school is still strong.
The committee in charge has request
ed that former students who have not
deceived invitations send in their names
so that the list may bo made complete.
The names may be sent to Dr. Brown
or to John Smith Ehrman B. Mitchell
find William C. buiilap, the committee
sietively in charge of the arrangements.

Old Time Sea Food
A glance at the fish shops to-day

the middle ages. Where is now the
whale of yesteryear that was roasted
! and served on the s pit, or boiled with
pca.», the tongue and tail being the
choicest parts The porpoise, too, was
a roya l ! dish, roasted whole and eaten
with mustard, when Henry VII was
King, and so was the grampus or sea
wolf. The lamprey, after its one dra
matic and regicidal performance, seems
•to 'have lost its popularity, and nobody

Many fish, however, ::eem to have en
dured throughout tin: ages, such as the
sprat and herring, eaten especially in

the anchovy, sternly anathematized by

what he was doing or saying.
The lawyer in the case was William
T. Rex, at one time one of the bright
est of the younger members of the bur.
Tliq taloonkeeper, Ernest Steubing, wai
fined 110 for contempt of court and w- .
seitt to jail until he became sober. Rex
represented Steubing, proprietor of the
Giibbaboro hotel, at Gibbsboro, N. J.,
and he sought a re.iewal of his license..
The hotel property is owned by Wil
liam Snyder, who filed a remonstrance
against the applicatiob. He contended
that Stewbing had violated the provi
sions of the lease, continually was in
a state of intoxication and, therefore,
was not a fit person to conduct a hotel.
Yesterday, when the Court called
Steubing's name, he -ose unsteadily to
"Here I am," he said. "1 want to
ask you a question." Judge Boyle saw
the man's condition and told Rex that
his client had come into court drunk.
"Oh, no; he ain H drunk," replied
Rex. "1 can get some people sitting
here who will say that he is not in tihait
."•Mr. Rex, are you trying to flim
flam the Court?'• said Judge Boyle, as
lie directed a constable to take charge
of Steulbing. The Court then denied
the application for the license,
Steubing $lO for contempt, and dfi
rected the Sheriff to keep him in jail
until sobered u:p.
After disposing of the case Ju
Boyle left the bench and, going over ta
Rex, said: "In my mind there is %
question as to your sanity; I am going
to have you examined."
Judge Boyle then went to the
nf Prosecutor Kraft. After a talk wit»
