A collection of rare Aztec gold jewelry, the value of which is estimated at $10,000, was recently discovered stored in an unused cellar of the Peabody Museum at Yale. Previous to its discovery, the existence of the treasure was known to no one. It is supposed that the collection was placed there by the late Professor Marsh, who was so much absorbed in the work of collecting that he never compiled a catalogue of the possessions of the Museum.

At a mass meeting on Monday night the students voted to adopt the new set of eligibility rules for athletics which were prepared by the managers of the athletic teams. The first rule is framed to prevent any possibility of professionalism, and the second to prevent an athlete from coming to Yale with no intention of serious study, stating that no man in eligible for a team unless he is a candidate for a degree in a course requiring at least two years' residence and an attendance of eight hours a week. The third rule requires one year of residence for a student from another college, and the fourth provides that one year must elapse before a "dropped" student can play on a team, unless before that time, he is reinstated in his class. The fifth rule is that no student shall represent the university in any one brance of athletics for more than four years.
