Tho Dally taken thin opportunity to
call to tho attention of the HtudentH
tho exceptional opportunltloH offered
lor RalnlnR useful information by at
tending convocation in the morning-
Chancellor Andrews Iiiik made it a
point this year to Rive the very best
to the HtudentH, and tuose who appre
ciate hla effortH are tho.se who are
realizing the greateHt benefits. The
series of talks and concerts from morn
ing to morning are not merely for
amusement and for passing away a half
hour, but for the strengthening of the
student mentally and spiritually. Often
times one may reap benefits from at
tending one of the short lectures which
may open up his field of view, give him
wider vision and broaden and cultivate
Thin suggestion of attendance at
convocation is not meant to urge and
insist that students attend tho exer
ciser, but merely calling to their at
tention tho opportunities which are
offered them, which are too valuable
for them to overlook.
Charles S. Allen, an alumnus of the
university, Bpoke at convocation yes
terday morning on the "Influence of
Public Opinion In Social Politics." Mr.
Allen spoke of the change In modern
universities In tho matter of consider
ing present politics. Tho tendency now
Is for students to take part In affairs
of tho world. Public sentiment, ho
said, Is a popular subject, formed by a
few. Tho administration of social af
fairs calls for special qualifications, the
most Important of which are business
ability, training and experience. Tho
samo experience Is required In modern
politics as in the handling of private
matters, only on a larger scale. Tho
great trouble at present is that tho
dogma of quality stands liftho way of
efficiency In local government. In de
mocracy every man has a right to
office, but In modern politics all ap
pointments made are expected to be
given to members of tho local democ
racy. In viewing the question of appoint
ments In office from tho standpoint of
whether tho office may be considered
a sugar-plum or not, tho question
arises whether It 1b democratic or not.
It 1b plainly soon that tho principle
does not repreBont tho idea of democ
racy. The difficulty of precedent lies In tho
fact that It Is founded on tho wrong
principle In tho matter of appolnt-
menu. An office Is created for tho valued at $20,000. His rarest stamp la

true. In the matter of foreign teachera.
Schools exist for the benefit of school
children and It Is absurd to say that
their Interests shall be affected for the
sake of getting members of homo de
mocracy. If tho name principle were
applied to higher educational admin
istration people would consider It fool
ish All Hhese precedents exist not
by virtue of positive law, but they
are due to public sentiment. Talk,
said the speaker, will govern more and
morn matters In the future and this
could easily be changed In citiee If a
few of the educated and intellectual
people would take the matter in hand.

The botany girls are somewhat ex
cited over a couple of notices of prizes
which are open to girls only. One of
these Is a prize of $1,000 for the best
thesis on a biological, chemical or
physical subject and the other Is a
scholarship In tho biological station at
Naples. Somo of the girls are talking
of trying to capture, one of the prizes.
K. K. Mackman, archaeologist for
the historical society, is In Platts
niouth making arrangements for the
placing of tho Horn pel collection of
curiosities in the historical library.
Tho local (i. A. R. has signified ita
willingness to allow its interest in the
collection to bo removed. Last year
Mr. Hlackman explored the flint quar
ries at Nehawka and while in that
part of tho state expects to spend some
timo in searching for the home of the
ancient people who did this work. Ho
will soon start on a trip along the
Platte from Plattsmouth to Ashland,
hoping to find tho clipping field where
the Hint was made into instruments.

NATURE'S OWN WAY
of teaching a Foreign
Through the Eiar.
FOREIGNERS MASTER OUR MOTHER TONGUE.
They have neither books, teachers nor interpreters; they may
be Russians, Germans, Frenchmen, Spaniards or Swedes,
they generally understand nothing about the principles of
grammar; they may be too young or uneducated to even write
their own language, yet despite it all, they invariably, within
a few months, master sufficient English not only to make
themselves understood, but to speak it gramatically and cor
rectly" provided they have mixed with cultured classes of
From these facts, it is obvious, some system must exist
which always and under all circumstances leads to complete
control of a foreign tongue. Again we say v
IT IS NATURE'S OWN WAY, AND
COMES THROUGH THE EAR ....
Let us bring any foreign language in your own room,
spoken by a foreign professor, who is there at all hours of the
day, willing to instruct you for 24 hours each day, if you wish.
The cost is but trifling. Call at our store for a free demonstration.
DO NOT FORGET that you will
soon be going away. You can't
carry your trunks. Call us up and
wc will take you to any depot and
