Curious verification is said to have been Given not Long ago to the tradition that no Man la allowed to become a member of the Vassar faculty unless he is married. If an unmarried Man make application for membership the Rule is to first inquire if he be married. The proverbial exception to Telb Rule occur etl in the Case of a Young Man who sought to fill the Vassar chair of history not Long ago and was so acceptable in every Way that his examiners forgot to inquire into the most important thing of ally his state of double or single blessedness. Not until the Day for opening the College was at hand did any one of them recall How shockingly they had left undone those things which they ought to have done. The Young Man by that time arrived had to confess that he was a Bachelor.
