The Exposition as
Prjfessnr F. W. Taylor, a former
member or the University faculty,
now cbief of tho department or agri
culture and acting chief of tho de
partment horticulture in tho Louisi
ana purohaso cxoosltion, uavc a talk
at convocation yesterday concerning
Ho gavo a'short history" of exposi

velopment in their character from
primitive trade exchange to tho mod
ern oxposltlon with Its purposes of
Instruction. Ancient fairs were
held for trading purposes and Buch
Institutions are frequent today In
Asia and in parts of Europe
The first exposition, ho said, in
the modern conception of the word,
was the Crystal Palaco at Liondon In
18f)l. Tho French followed with fairs
at frequent intervals, that of 1001
being their greatest effort. The
United States held her first exposi

The coming exposition at St. Louis
in 1903 marks the centennial of the
purchase of Louisiana, its purpose
being to bring together the products
or what was the territory of Louisi
ana and to servo as an object lesson of
Its growth ProfcBsor Taylor said that
the territory including Nebraska and
extending north to Canada and west
to tho mountains held a' population
of 30,000 whites. Today it contains
.'10,000,00 peoplo and her wealth and
industries have grown in proportion.
All tho statos which wore a part of
Louisiana have shown a remarkable
Tho exposition will include tho
"greatest oxblblt on tho largest area"
known In tho world's history. A
building covering 35 acres will house
the agricultural products.a large pro
Dortlon of rthlch will come from the
states included in tho Louisiana pur
chase. Nebraska has not yet got Jn
line nut will soon prepare for a fair
lepresentation of her products.
Professor Taylor believes that tho
exposition of the future will not bo
of such a grand scale, bub will be an
exhibit of a single Industry. He high
ly appreciates the exposition as an
educational factor and advises every
student who can to visit tho fair of
Tho Nebraska Art Association
closed its exhibition last night with
a very largo orowd in attendance.
F. M. Hall acted in the capacity
of master of ceremonies for the even
ing. In behalf of tho officers or tho
Association ho extended thankB for
tho co-operation which they havo
rcoeived this vear in the matter or
attendance and general moral sup
port. Thero is an evidence that the
people of" the oity and the University
anjoy art, said Mr. Unit, and that Is
tho roason that tho people havo tho
opportunity or having this exhibi
tion In their midst even If It bo fur
a short timo only.
Last year's cxponso was slxteon
hundred dollars and the rcciopts wore
twenty-two hundred dollars. This
year tho expenses aro less by about
four hundred and fifty dollars. Tho
receipts are not so largo as they wore
last year and it Is hard for tho offi
cers to tell at this time Just how
much can be expended in tho buying
or a picturo as has been tho usual
custom. About two thousand school
children havo visited the art hall.
There was a decided lack or atten
dance or teachers during tho State
Teachers' Convention. Tho atten
dance of University students was
very gratifying, showing that they
appreciated what was offered tbem.
Mr. ITall stated that the Association
had come to stay and that they ex
pected to havo tho support or every
one. Several from tho audience wero
called on Tor short talks, among thorn
being Chancellor Andrews, Univer
sity proressors and gentlemen from
tho city. Misses. Ilayden and Valsh
The result of tho ballot on the
picture to bo purchased has not as
yet been determined, but will bo
announced as soon as possible. The
general favorite seemed to bo "IT ar
varo Urldge at Moonlight."
MaY N()TPLY WISCONSIN.
According to the Pally Cardinal
of Wisconsin, the game between
that Institution and Nebraska may
bo called off. Tho reason given Is
that Nebraska Insists on datos that
Wisconsin cannot conveniently fill.
Tho Cardinal says that In caso no
other dates than November 15 or 22
can be made tho Nebraska came
will be drobped and negotiations
opened with Northwestern.
In speaking of tho dltllculty Man
ager Eugel said last night that tho
date November 15 had been submitt
ed to the Wisconsin board as tho only
one on which Nebaska could meet
On account of tho Minnesota game
November 1 it is not thoucht advls
ablo to play Wisconsin the week fol
lowing, November 8. As tho matter
now stands if Wisconsin docs not
accept the date submitted to them
tho game will probably be dropped.
Tho game with Northwestoru on
Thanksgiving day is now an assured
fact. A letter from that Institution
was received yesterday. Tho game
was agreed to and tho contract will
probably bo made today.
THE OFFICERS nOP.
Tho officer's hop held last night at
Walsh hall was one of tbo most suc
cess Tul informal social affairs of tho
season. Tho committee under Chair
man J. R. Farney and Master of
Ceremonies W. P. Wallaoo spared no
pains to make it an enjoyable event.

HAS THE DEATH GERM BEEN
At the recent meeting of tho
American Chomloal Sooioty, in dis
cussing Proressor Lueb's. theory of tho
possibility of averting death by
chemical re-action, Professor E. G.
Conklin, of tho University of Penn
sylvania, said that scientists had long
considered such a possibility. "Pro
fessor Wiessmann, of Germany, ono
of tho groatest students of this sub
ject in the world.", he said, "long
ago declared ljuat beyond doubt
science would , ultimately reach a
point where death, if not averted en
tirely, would be indefinitely postpon
ed. How this is possible wo do nqt
know as yet, but I am inclined to be
lieve that Professor Loeb has seen a
glimmering of light that is leading
him in the right direction. He is
today tho greatest thinker in Ameri
ca os this subject."
