upper-classmen cutting the hair of a
part of the members of the freshman

their "barbers," nor did the "barbers'
hunt out those who escaped as was
stated in your article.
As to the reported statement of an

that washes the clothes
For after you pop the clothes in the shiny
copper tub of the 1900 Cataract Electric
Washer, the water swirls back and forth

times oftener than in the ordinary washer.
This figure 8 motion is an exclusive feature
of the 1900!
No wear and tear on the clothes, either,
for there are no parts in the tub to rub
against them, or to lift out and clean after
the wash is finished. And the swinging
