The HiK i ckk of university graduates
in lh( recent fellowship appointments
at (Columbia vml vornlty should be ex
ceedingly gratifying to all Its friends.
Among (lie prizes was one which was
competed for by the strongest schools
in the country. The fact that an
alumnus of Nebraska got it speaks well
not only for the recipient, but for the
quality of work done at the university
It should be borne in mind by the
athletes of the university that only four
more days remain to enter the contest
troni the results of which the track
team will be chosen. Those who are
lilted for this work should not fail to
enter the trials, which will come off
Saturday. It means honor to the one
who succeeds, and besides this the
( banco of winning an N Rhould be an
ample ln entive.
Everybody should tome out tomor
iow and give the baseball team a rous
ing send-off on their departure for Min
neapolis, where they will meet the
gophers. Captain Hell has as good an
aggregation of players this year as has
gone out from the university for a long
time and it needs only the support of
their backers to make the season one
to be remembered In baseball annals.
The team has Bhown that It Is worthy
of Biipport and It Is now up to the
students to give it what is Justly due
it. Students who intend going to the
train with the team should be on the
caniHis at 1:30. An effort will be made
to have the band out to add to the
LIEUTENANT EVANS AT CHAPEL.
Lieutenant Evans, son of Pension
Commissioner EvaiiH, now in charge of
the Lincoln recruiting station, ad
dressed the students at convocation
last Friday morning on the phases of
military life In China during the period
juBt preceding the relief of Minister
Conger. Too much talking, said the
speaker, had resulted rather seriously
for some military men of late and he
would, therefore, try to avoid any such
result Lieutenant Evans has a very
pleasing disposition, which, together
with his unaffected manner of speak-

transport Hancock, he arrived with
his regiment In Tien Tsin In the sum
mer of 1900. Arriving there, a deplora
ble condition of aualrs was found.
Hodles of dead animals and Chinamen
were strewn In the streets and formed
a large part of the log jam in the river
The sanitary conditions which pre
vailed there were not the best, as may
well be judged.
The social life in the military tamps
was something novel, said the speaker
After taps a crowd of ticrman. French
or Italian officers would often come
around and awaken the American offi
cers to indulge In a champagne supper,
using six-inch rice bowls to drink out
of. In case the officers were unable to
do away with all the liquid, they would
call upon some of the soldiers to assist
The artillery encamped near a fa
mous Chinese lub house, which was
soon converted into a commissary
i.uilding. The house was a historic
building, having stood for more than
ir0 years. To be a member of this lub
the applicant was obliged, beside other
things, to purchase a colIln. At his
death each member is placed in his
coffin, which is allowed to remain in
the building as long as the relatives
pay the rent.
Lieutenant ICvans had no words of
praise for the Russians as promoters
of railroads. Their accommodations in
China were then very poor. The Jap
anese soldiers were natural investiga
tors, often carrying their investigations
so far as to stop a funeral procession
to find out what was the matter. An
interesting regiment was one composed
entirely of Gorman students. All of
them were of excellent physique and
made good soldiers.
Lieutenant Evans had a number of
Chinese relics which he had secured
while in the Orient. A Chinese queue
served to amuse those to whom it was

YOU RE- NOT- NEXT I
If you will look into the history of bicycle selling during the past
three years you will see the justice of this observation. The enor
mous increase in the sale of Kacycles every year in this city proves that
the bicycle is no longer "in it" as a competitor. The reason why the
Racycle has proved so popular is because it's built right. The pull of
the chain and sprocket is between the bearings. We have a full slock
of 1902 Kacycles. Several improvements. See us at once.
