BUSINESS COLLEGE NOTES.
Friday evening the Business college
gave a reception to the new students
most of them were there and a number
of the old students also. The evening
was passed in taking names of books
and trying to find the names of
authors and discussing books and
authors and speaking pieces. Miss
Ruth Warren and Mr. Karl Spenee
were leaders in the race of authors.

the occasion. We all say we. had a

President Dietrich read one of Cap"
tain Jack Crawford's poems entitled,
"Where the Hand of Cod is .Seen" in
chapel Thursday morning. Captain
.lack means Nebraska and Kansas,
when he says he does not like the city
and "loves to wander where the hand
of Cod is seen." Of course in Nebras
ka and Kansas people think that Mr.
Crawford is about right and are glad
to note that a man who has traveled
these Fnited States all over is still
very fond of our place.
The boys of the college are planning
a base ball team for 'his fall. We
believe in athletics and we would like
to see tho town of Hod Cloud take

iould do for our people.

Angelas of old, as the bell rang at the
close of day everyone dropped their
work and stood in silent prayer during
its ringing. We can't say how much
praying is done, but we do know it to
be a fact that Judge Keeney could
sing one of the songs clear through
without any help a half an hour after
all other tunes ceased. Wonderful?

The Surgeon's Nightmare.
Two patients who called In com
pany upon a noted surgeon found him
bemoaning a twlngo of pain In his
right forefinger. The callers smiled.
"Great Scott, doctor!" exclaimed ono,
"you don't mean to say that a pain
in tho finger bothers n man so used
to Bcenea of suffering as yourself?"
"It certainly does," the surgeon an-
Bwered, with a worried look. "How
I do I know that It isn't tho first svmn-
torn of blood poisoning? That is tho
nightmare of the surgeon. No mat
