In these days of prosperity
many men and women who have
acquired a goodly amount of
valuable property are in a posi
tion to make handsome gifts to
worthy institutions. Just now
the attention of such fortunate
citizens of our state is being in
vited to the opportunity to place
their surplus funds in the $400,
000 endowment which friends of
Christian education hope to pre
sent on May first to the Nebraska
Wesleyan university. This in
stitution has fully proven its
worthiness and is a credit to the
state and nation. It is manned
by a strong faculty of forty-five
highly capable professors, led by
Chancellor C. A. Fulmer, himself
a Nebraska product, who not only
possesses masterful equipment
for the work, but is one of the
most genial and lovable of men.
The Wesleyan is turning out 100
Christian teachers per year and
other of her graduates are filling
positions of honor as pastors or
men of business.

Oscar Wasem, and Fact Was
Frank Schmarderer, the much
vaunted Louisville wrestler, met
defeat last night in two straight
falls at the hands of Oscar Was

was refereed by Farmer Burns.
The first round was completed in

outcome of the match and left the
hall quite crestfallen. A large
crowd witnessed the match, it
having been extensively adver
tised. No special train was run
from Plattsinoulh on this occas-

the sport from this city witness

Louisville, who was in the citv
