The third judge for tins re ipiocity '

said he could not come to Lincoln
April 2f. whoieupon Kansas selected
Judge T. L Norval of .eward The
day they chose him and he was noti
lleld that both"iuiiversities were agreed j
upon him. Mr. Mcllugh informed the
debating board that ho would after all j
be able to come and would do so In
the meantime Kansas, not duly in
formed as to the capable material, sub
mitted to Nebraska the names of two
gentlemen engaged in educational work
in Nebraska, but neither or them knw
anything in parti ular about reciproci
ty, the tariff question and neither of
them was particularly qualified to
judge debating. These tacts the de
bating board frankly placed befoie

when he arrived Wednesday night The
(.abating board assisted nini yesterday
in Retting evidence here and in Omaha
that Mr. McHugh and Judge Norval
would judge the arguments without
bias As tho result Mr McMath said
he was convinced that Nebraska's deal
ings were perfectly fair in every re
sped nnd he agreed that either Mr.
McHugh or Judge Norval would be
more competent and reliable than the
gentleman the Kansas association had

fested in track athletics as shown by

forts to bring out men, as no doubt our

ber of exceedingly beautiful specimens
of birds, animals and nests were ex
hibited, which showed that the profes
sor had been well repaid for his work.
The difficulties under which the
naturalist must labor while in that
country wore well pictured. The for
est growths are so thick and the small
er plant life so abundant that persons
desiring to explore the country must
constantly use a knife with which to
cut their way.
Every form of plant life, said Pro
fessor Brunei-, is JJled with Insects or
various kinds. There are 770 different
species of birds to lie found In Costa

botanical specimens are equally numer

the different species of birds was vory
