After a day's rest the 'Varsity were
out last night. All the men were In
their positions, excepting Plllsbury,

work. The men are still somewhat
stiff and sore, but the sharp north
wind made fast work necessary. The
formations wore executed with a "snap
and vigor which was good to look
The 'Varsity did not line up for a
scrimmage, but confined their work to
formations and signal practice. The
two scrub teams lined up, however,
and after hard playing for three-quar-Jers
of an hour closed the practice
with a run around the field. Hlckle
had no difficulty whatever In pushing
his opponent over the gridiron. The
teams were so evenly matched that
no score was made on either side.

NEW AGRICULTURAL BULLETIN.
The bulletin on shee'p feeding re
cently published by the Nebraska Ex
periment station showed some very
lntere8ting results in favor of alfalfa
hay, with different grain rations. The
lota on alfalfa with corn, corn and one
fourths oats, or com with one-fifth
bran, made an averago gain of thirty-three
pounds in ninety-eight days,
with an average gain of seventy-two
cents a head. The lota on sorghum
hay and corn, corn and one-fourth oats
or corn and one-fifths bran, made only
twenty-two pounds gain. Three dif
ferent gran rations were fed to the
six lota of sheep on alfalfa, three lota
being under cover and three invopen
yards. Four lota were fed on sorghum
and no particular increase in the gain
was observed when bran or oats was
added to corn, but a marked gain was
found when oil meal was added to the
corn ration. The greater gain on corn
and oil meal was mndo nt a lower' cost
per pound than where corn and sor
ghum nlono were fed.
One value to bo derived from such
an experiment Is tho Interest taken
In the feeding by tho boys, who make
tho rounds almost dally to see how the
stock Is getting on. They study the
dlfferont lots and their comparative
gains, and determine for themselves
the relative value of the4dlffcrcrvt, me
thods of feeding.
The School of Agriculture begins
'November 11. 1901. nnd experimental
work is always- In progress which will
be of Interest and profit to the boys
who attend. For Information write

PROFESSOR H. R. SMITH ARRIVES.
Professor H. R. Smith, the now ad
dition to the School of Agriculture,
has arrived to take up his work. He
has been appointed assistant pro fen
sor of animal husbandry. Ho has huff
exceptionally good training, being a
graduate of Michigan agricultural col
lego and tho University of Wisconsin
In agriculture. Last year he wnB act
ing professor of agriculture in the
University of Missouri during tho ab
sence of Professor Mumford in Eu
rope. He was very successful, both In
his work In the unlvorslty.and in the
farmers' Institutes. The addition of
Professor Smith to the force has ma
terially strengthened tho department
of animal husbandry and the efficiency
of Its work In tho School of Agriculture.
During tho last few yearfl a great
change haa taken place in tho atti
tude of the farmer upon the subject of
agricultural education. This la due
to two causes. First, agricultural ed
ucation haa become mucbmbro i)rac
tlcal as the schools have realized that
the farm boy needed to know how to
cultivate the soil, to caro for an or
chard, or to feed cattle In the best,
manner, or to do some other particular
thing. If tho f arm, boy can be taught
how to breed or select a good steer
for feeding purposes and how Ho feed
him at a greater profit, thla surely
makes his business more profitable.
If he can be taught how to handle ani
mals to prevent disease or how to euro
the simpler and more common diseasea
of animals, this certainly is a practi
cal kind of .education which should
be added to a knowledge of arithme
tic, geography, etc. Write to the Uni
versity of Nebraska for particulars.
